Development Education Group


This group views Development education as a fundamental part of our development cooperation programme; it highlights Ireland’s many interactions with the rest of the world, and enables people to become effective global citizens.  The members of Dóchas are uniquely placed to play a bridging role between citizens in Ireland and people in developing countries.
