'Early Childhood Care and Education at the Margins: African Perspectives on Birth to Three'
Published as part of the European Early Childhood Research Association (EECERA) Collection of Research in Early Childhood Education, this book provides perspectives on early childhood care (ECCE) from diverse contexts in Africa.
The book is co-edited by ISS Assistant Professor Auma Okwany, Hasina Banu Ebrahim, and Oumar Barry and includes 13 chapters from 10 African countries authored by Anglophone and Francophone scholars. The various chapter authors engage the dominant framing of ECCE policy and practice and draw attention to the need for engaging the margins to promote responsive thought and action.
Chapter authors include ISS PhD researcher Elizabeth Ngutuku and alumni Aurelia Munene and Hilton Nyamukapa.
The publication is an outcome of the Child and Youth Institute held in Dakar, Senegal in 2015 and supported by the Council for Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) considered the hub of knowledge production for social sciences in Africa. Codesria is dedicated to building African scholars through research, networking, and knowledge dissemination. The 2015 Child and Youth Institute focused on the birth to 3 phase in Africa and was co-directed by volume editors Auma Okwany and Hasina Ebrahim.
