This book is part of UNESCO’s Education on the Move series created to provide policy-makers, educators and other stakeholders with state-of- the-art analyses of topical issues. The book is divided into three main chapters each including vigorous research papers that critically analyse ECCE-related themes. The first part discusses ‘understanding ECCE as a right and development imperative’. The second part provides an overview of ‘meeting the challenges of inequality in and through ECCE; and the third part is dedicated to a scrutiny of ‘ensuring quality ECCE through contextually relevant provisions. Repositioning ECCE in the post-2015 agenda, Investing against evidence: the global state of early childhood care and education, is therefore a must-read offering a useful, multi-disciplinary, liable account of ECCE for all education stakeholders.
