Dr. Alla Korzh is an educator, researcher, and practitioner in the field of international education with a regional focus on Eastern Europe and education development. She holds a doctorate in international educational development from Teachers College, Columbia University. Alla's research focuses on education (in-)equity, social justice, and educational transformations in post-Soviet contexts. Alla's research focuses on structural inequalities, education access, quality, and equity for marginalized populations. She has conducted qualitative research with socio-economically disadvantaged children, youth, and adults, namely orphans in Ukraine and formerly incarcerated women in New York City. Her current collaborative research project examines how transnational youths’ and young adults’ participation in social movements creates alternative spaces for informal citizenship education.
