NORRAG is a global network of 5,000 members for international policies and cooperation in education and training.

NORRAG is an offshoot of the Research, Review, and Advisory Group (RRAG) established in 1976 and at the time funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and Swedish International Development Authority (Sida).

It was charged with critical reviewing and disseminating education research related to the developing world. The current name was adopted in 1986.

NORRAG's strength lies in addressing under-researched questions of quality and equity in key issues in education and development, and in amplifying under-represented expertise, particularly from the South.

NORRAG's core mandate is to produce, disseminate and broker critical knowledge and build capacity for and with our network's wide range of stakeholders.

Our stakeholders from academia, governments, NGOs, international organizations, foundations and the private sector inform and shape education policies and practices at national and international levels.

Through our work, NORRAG contributes to creating the conditions for more participatory, evidence-informed decisions that improve equal access to and quality of education and training.

NORRAG is an associate programme of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva.
