Erica is now editing a book about global reform efforts in education entitled “Why the Theory and Practice of Networks Matter to Education Research and Policy”. It primarily addresses the need for sector interdependence and personalization of local, national and global policy reforms.

The book will be an edited collection providing conceptual and theoretical structures, processes and rationales to explain how networks work together as intermediaries across different educational contexts.
