Haavelsrud, Magnus – International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning, 2015
Epistemological preferences in Western academies over the centuries became the measuring rod for what is to count as valid knowledge in thinking about development.

Sewchurran, Kosheek; McDonogh, Jennifer – International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning, 2015
