Spiteri, Damian; Sang, Guoyuan – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2019

Richards, Cameron – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2019

Simpson, Ashley; Dervin, Fred – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2019
In 2018 the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) stressed that 'citizens need not only the skills to be competitive and ready for a new world of work, but more importantly they also need to develop the capacity to analyse and understand global and intercultural issues' (OECD 2018, 2). The OECD global competence framework…

What are crucial determinants of a country's average educational performance? Using data from the OECD PISA 2012 study on 58 countries, we develop a typology of educational regimes based on marketisation in terms of school autonomy and accountability. Following organisational theories, we expect that school autonomy is an ideal condition for…

Kubow, Patricia K. – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2018
My decade-long research on democracy and schooling in a Xhosa township has led to an examination of epistemological influences on democratic citizenship from Western and non-Western (i.e. African) perspectives. While Max Weber advanced the notion of an autonomous citizen within Western democratic states, different philosophical and cultural…

Akar, Bassel – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2018

Bellino, Michelle J. – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2018
This paper builds a theory of wait-citizenship, wherein the lack of opportunities for structural inclusion has contributed to young people's liminal positioning in society and their struggles to become social adults while seeking equality, democratic freedoms, and a sense of belonging. Two decades after civil war, Guatemalan youth are routinely…

Nieto, Diego – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2018
Understanding multilateral institutions' role in the construction of desirable goals for educational reform is a key element to grasp the weight globalisation has on local practices of education. Comparative studies of civics and moral education point to the idea of 'citizenship' as a site revealing not only the political economy but also the…

Jerome, Lee – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2018
Contemporary citizenship education tends to focus on the development of skills through real experiences, which has led to a relative neglect or simplification of knowledge and understanding. This article outlines a framework for analysing citizenship curricula drawing on Young's notion of 'powerful knowledge' and 'knowledge of the powerful' and on…

Brooks, Rachel – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2018
Higher education is of considerable importance to policymakers across Europe. Indeed, it is viewed as a key mechanism for achieving a range of economic, social and political goals. Nevertheless, despite this prominence within policy, we have no clear understanding of the extent to which conceptualisations of 'the student' are shared across the…

Ransom, James – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2018
Internationalisation is a cross-cutting theme in the strategic plans of many universities, and an increased international profile is a core goal for many cities. At the same time, even the leaders of some of Europe's most avowedly outward-facing, 'global' universities have begun to prioritise relations with their city counterparts in recent years.…

Nir, Adam; Kondakci, Yasar; Emil, Serap – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2018
Educational policy borrowing has become rather common in our globalised world.

Based on a secondary analysis of documents and research reports, this…
