Read the NISSEM Global Briefs Volume III

The third volume of the NISSEM Global Briefs offers important contributions for how SEL might support contextual, social aims of education systems, including for human rights, support for marginalized learners, interculturality, and gender equality. It also articulates how education systems more broadly, from infrastructures to school leadership, can support SEL in return. As such, it offers a key contribution to the diverse ways that SEL can strengthen education and our capacity to care and cooperate.
