Abstract

The aim of this study is to discuss the role of education in the process of development of poor countries. The study is dividend into five sections, each of which is concerned with the relationship of education with one of the development indicators. Sections frame the given issue within a macro perspective, analyse the underlying micromechanisms and present specific examples found in the case studies. Overall, it has been illustrated that while the macrorelationship between education and development at the global level is quite evident, the specific individual mechanisms which enable such relationship are very diverse and dependent on the context in which they work.
