Conditional cash transfer and education under neoliberalism in Nigeria: inequality, poverty and commercialisation in the school sector

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

SUMMARY
This briefing contributes to the debate on education and inequalities in the era of neoliberal globalisation, exploring the extent to which conditional cash transfer (CCT) expands the choices and potentials of children from poor households using the critical lens of the capability approach. It argues that the effectiveness of the CCT programme in mitigating the effects of neoliberal policies in education and addressing inequalities in and through education has been limited, highlighting the implications for education and sustainable development.
