Research on literacy in general and reading in particular has largely been carried out in high-income countries and contexts and generalized to low-income countries and contexts. CODE has established the Context Matters Research Award to support African researchers as they take the lead in evidence-based research. Their intent is to stimulate conversation, develop a research agenda, and support research which is clearly situated in local contexts and recognizes the multifaceted and complex relationships between the local and global in education.
