Jonathan James is an intern in the Directorate for Education and Skills. He is currently in the third year of a PhD at the UCL Institute of Education. His research looks at the impact of domestic terrorism on education policy and practice in England and France, and particularly at efforts to promote social cohesion and prevent radicalisation in the two education systems. Before starting the PhD in 2017, Jonathan worked for twelve years as a teacher and middle leader in secondary schools in London and Paris. He is particularly interested in the relationship between education research, policymaking, and practice and is looking forward to finding out more about this at the OECD.
