Centre for Comparative and International Research in Education (CIRE)

The Centre for Comparative and International Research in Education (CIRE) brings together researchers who address issues of social, environmental and epistemic justice in education. We welcome doctoral supervision and collaborations in these areas. We work across educational theory, policy and practice with a comparative sensibility to global and local dynamics.

We are a multidisciplinary group using a range of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches in comparative research. This includes expertise in sociology, history, social psychology, post-colonial and decolonial theory and collaborative, arts-based inquiry.
