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…

Wagner, Daniel A.; Lockheed, Marlaine; Mullis, Ina; Martin, Michael O.; Kanjee, Anil; Gove, Amber; Dowd, Amy Jo – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2012
Over the past decade, international and national education agencies have begun to emphasize the improvement of the quality (rather than quantity) of education in developing countries. This trend has been paralleled by a significant increase in the use of educational assessments as a way to measure gains and losses in quality of learning. As…

Lebeau, Yann; Stumpf, Rolf; Brown, Roger; Lucchesi, Martha Abrahao Saad; Kwiek, Marek – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2012
The aftermath of the international financial crisis of 2008/2009 and current economic downturn in the world economy has unsurprisingly put publicly-funded higher education (HE) systems under immense pressure in most parts of the world. Added to measures of the past 20 years, aiming at introducing cost effective management approaches imported from…

Sayed, Yusuf; Davies, Lynn; Hardy, Mike; Arani, Abbas Madandar; Kakia, Lida; Bano, Masooda – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2011
The above title was suggested by the editors of this journal as being an interesting topic for a forum. It is indeed a valuable one to explore, in that while there has been extensive writing on various connections between security, religion and education (e.g. Apple 2004; Griffin 2006; Merry 2007; Davies 2008), situating this within comparative…

Barrett, Angeline M. – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2011
A good quality education is inclusive, relevant and democratic. Of these three characteristics, the author contends that democratic is the most fundamental and underpins the other two. Education can only truly be inclusive and relevant if its goals are continuously the subject of open democratic debate, since education is a value-based,…

This article presents a "COMPARE" forum specifically designed for research students.

Jankowska, Maja – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2011
This article reflects on and discusses Central and Eastern European (CEE) learners' adaptability and achievement in one English post-1992 university. There appears to be a scarcity of studies of values, beliefs, attitudes and needs as well as achievement (and factors contributing to it) between CEE and other learners. Since the expansion of the…

Arthur, Lore – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2011
For many, 1 March 2011 is a significant date. On the one hand, it was the day that David Mitchell, the international development secretary, presented the key outcomes of two major reviews on international aid to the Houses of Parliament; and on the other, 1 March was the date chosen for the simultaneous launch of the 2011 Global Monitoring Report…

Bromley, Patricia; Andina, Marina – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2010
Violent conflict and humanitarian disasters such as floods, famines, or tsunamis, have existed since the start of human history. However, it is only recently that education in these emergency situations has emerged as a visible organizational field. We aim to use a unique theoretical application of sociological neo-institutionalism to explain the…

Lo, William Yat Wai – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2010
This paper views seeking the optimal balance between state strengths and the scope of state functions for "good governance" as the formation of a homogenization-heterogenization matrix of policy initiatives in different social settings. Homogenization refers to a global tendency for institutional changes and governance framework to…

Maddox, Bryan – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2010
As a result of chronic poverty many people in South Asia experience poor quality schooling, interrupted schooling, or no schooling at all. People affected by poverty face multiple constraints on wellbeing, which typically include informal employment, low wages and poor health. In such contexts the benefits and, more specifically, the…

Corbett, Michael J. – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2010
With the rise of network society, consumerism, individualization, globalization and contemporary change forces, students are pressured to both perform well in standardized academic assessments while at the same time constructing a non-standard, unique project of the self. I argue that this generates a particular set of place-based tensions for…

Abukari, Abdulai – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2010
Higher education institutions seem to be becoming increasingly flexible with different functions.
