Oxford Department of International Development (ODID); Authors: Yisak Tafere and Alula Pankhurst – Details for “Can Children in Ethiopian Communities Combine Schooling With Work?”

Combining school with work presents challenges for children growing up in contexts of poverty. This paper examines the complex relationship between school and work in the lives of children in Ethiopian communities. It draws on evidence from three rounds of surveys and three rounds of qualitative research with case study children.

The findings raise questions about the quality and value of education for children living in poor circumstances, the risks associated with the expansion of paid work and the constraints on children managing school and work.

Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Brighton; Author: Elizabeth Mills

If the global commitment to eradicate inequality for all people is truly unequivocal, as leaders claim it to be, the implementation of these Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) needs to take into account the voices of those people who, because of their sexual orientation or gender identity and expression (SOGIE), have historically been excluded from the benefits of development policies and programmes.

The findings in this report are based on a comprehensive review of empirical literature on sexuality, gender and development, including primary research conducted on the Sexuality, Poverty and Law programme.

Development assistance has for many decades been aiming to support developing countries’ strategies to achieve more sustainable development. Yet, evidence shows that the impact of such assistance has been well below expectations.

This study examines efforts to enhance the effectiveness of development assistance, and it analyses commitments, actions, progress and challenges. It captures the broadening of the debate, its participants, and the emerging, more complex global setting of development cooperation. It specifically looks into the Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (2011).
