Saville I. Kushner University of the West of England, UK, Centre for Applied research in Education, University of East AngliaMy interests fall under the umbrella of Democracy and Children's Rights. For many years I have been a member of a transatlantic college of theorists and practitioners of educational evaluation developing and testing democratic, case-based approaches to inquiry.
Most recently, I applied these interests to the field of international development while on a long-term secondment to the United Nations as Regional Monitoring and Evaluation Adviser to UNICEF in Latin America & the Caribbean (2005-2007).
My interest in democracy also finds expression in studies of curriculum, learning, professional policy and action, and in advocacy of rights-based methodologies. For example, I have a special interest in the submission of research to the judgement of professionals and civil society.
