This thesis considers the possibilities for educational partnerships for social justice in a context of neoliberal hegemony. Through a critical pedagogy framework it considers the ever-narrowing view of education under the dominant political discourse of Neoliberalism as a matter of ‘market advantage’, and provides an overview of the challenges facing educational partnerships in a climate where the primary aim of education is to bolster market position and facilitate the commercialisation of learning and knowledge.
