Commonwealth Education Partnerships 2007 is the essential overview of education for development in the Commonwealth, focusing on both intra-Commonwealth collaboration as well as partnerships between member governments, civil society and the private sector. As the official publication for the 16th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers, held in Cape Town, the 2007 edition covers both the current trends in education and development and the main themes of the conference: access to quality education for the good of all; the right to primary, secondary and tertiary education; globalisation and its impact on both student/teacher migration and trade in educational services; as well as trends in education financing.
