Education Research in Global Contexts publishes cutting-edge scholarship in the field of global, international, development, cross-cultural, peace, and human rights education. Welcoming interdisciplinary work, the series connects education theory, policy and practice in the political, economic, and social contexts shaping - and shaped by - global social change.
Connected to the Global Education Colloquium, the series highlights the work of distinguished and emerging scholars on education research, policy and practice in relation to education access, equity and quality. It includes, too, contributions from renowned education leaders and practitioners to connect globally engaged research to education teaching and policymaking around the world.
