Comparative Education and International Development (CEID) Research Group

The CEID Research Group brings together a diverse group of researchers, scholars and practitioners working on or interested in comparative education and/or education and international development.

We aim to benefit the local and global community by serving as a hub for critical reflection and evaluation of education. We investigate education's direct and indirect potential by exploring its complex, interdependent relationship with society, culture and politics. Our projects often have an applied aspect and include collaborations with individuals and institutions both within and beyond academia.

The Research Group is one part of a vibrant and active CEID community. The community is made up of three parts:

  • CEID Research Group
  • MSc CEID Programme
  • CEID Student Society

The three parts of our community ensure that all who are interested may find a home and contribute to activities and events.

For regular updates from across the CEID Community, including the CEID Research please see our blog.
