Miri Yemini


Prof. Miri Yemini, a Professor of Education at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, is deeply immersed in the scholarly exploration of global educational dynamics. Currently, she leads a groundbreaking research endeavor, funded by the European Research Council Consolidator Grant, which delves into the multifaceted landscape of youth activism. This research aims to elucidate the nuanced ways in which young individuals engage in activism across diverse spheres, including but not limited to the pressing issues of climate crisis and human rights advocacy. Drawing upon a rich tapestry of theoretical frameworks and methodological approaches, Prof. Yemini's research seeks to uncover the underlying mechanisms driving youth participation in global campaigns. Her interdisciplinary approach integrates insights from education, sociology, communication studies, and beyond, offering a comprehensive understanding of the complex interplay between individual agency, social context, and systemic factors shaping youth activism.

His research lies at the intersection of sociology of education, policy analysis and comparative education. It examines the relationship between globalization, governance institutions and education policy - i.e. how education policies are formulated, promoted and enacted in different institutional settings, and how these processes impact education quality and equity. Verger publishes in comparative education, sociology of education and social policy journals, and is lead editor of the Journal of Education Policy and the World Yearbook of Education. He is also the academic director of the Erasmus Plus-awarded Education Policies for Global Development-GLOBED Master degree.
