The global education crisis is a complex problem that requires change from teachers, school managers, civil society, implementers, planners, governments and donors. Addressing the issues that lie beneath this crisis requires new ways of working. Systems thinking is a suite of approaches to grappling with complex problems that are beginning to gain traction in international education.

The next book in the NORRAG Series on International Education and Development brings together new research in the field of systems thinking in international education. Published in January 2023 as an open access title by Edward Elgar, UK, Systems Thinking in International Education and Development, edited by Moira V. Faul, Executive Director, NORRAG and Laura Savage, underlines the urgency, scale and complexity of the crisis of declining student learning trajectories despite significant financial investments and reforms and proposes systems thinking as a way of understanding global education crises and facilitating the real change needed to achieve SDG4.
