Dr Rafael Mitchell


I am a lecturer in Comparative and International Education with a special focus on education in Africa. I previously worked at the University of Cambridge where I co-founded the African Education Research Database. I serve on the leadership team for the international GCRF research programme Transforming Education for Sustainable Futures, which is supporting up to 80 Southern-led projects in Rwanda, Somalia/Somaliland, South Africa and India.

My research and teaching address global inequalities in knowledge production in education, and processes of schooling and school improvement, with respect to inclusive pedagogies, curricula and leadership. I welcome doctoral supervision and research collaborations in these areas.
