First Edition
  • Li Wang - Deputy Director, UNESCO International Research and Training Centre for Rural Education, China

March 2015 | 320 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd

This book is an important investigation of the roles that a university plays in sustainable rural development. In doing so, the book takes an interesting approach and engages in a comparative study of two universities, located in China and Australia. The book examines that in spite of being in different locations their work and roles are no less significant in terms of national development.

The book poses the question, ‘What is the role of universities in bringing about knowledge transformation in rural communities?’
