This article examines the nature of resource provision for development and global education in New Zealand through three lenses: (1) the wider educational policy context; (2) the knowledge production processes and practices that have shaped development and global education; and (3) the content of selected educational resources. This threefold analysis reveals an increasingly diffuse environment of educational resource production and consumption, with little evaluation or coordination. Despite this, there are opportunities for development and global education to reposition itself more centrally within the space of educational resource provision, through supporting learners' critical, active and informed participation in local and global communities. The broader approach provides a new arena that can, if done well, enhance global and development education.
