Research interests:
Jacqueline's doctoral study examines how a Roman Catholic missionary school for girls run by an international women’s congregation can best provide a ‘good education’ to the girls it serves in Karamoja, Uganda. The study analyses how female students transitioning out of secondary education understand their own needs and how those needs can holistically be met by the development of a capability set. Research interests include educational access to females and other marginalized groups, Catholic missionary context of the 21st century, American non-governmental interventions abroad, culture/value systems of children's homes, Catholic feminine identity, and development projects for orphaned and vulnerable children.

Thematic Groups:
Children and Youth Education Empowerment and Collective Capabilities Ethics and Development Graduate Student Network Indigenous Peoples

Regional Network:
Southern African Network

Acerca de Jacqueline Gallo

Jacqueline Gallo is a doctoral candidate at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge.  She performs ethnographic research in faith-based girls' schools for marginalized and pastoralist communities in East Africa.  In examining what constitutes a ‘good’ education for these young women, using the Capability Approach hopefully will pre-empt the assumption that discourse about them must always focus on marginalization and vulnerability.
