Centre for International Education (CIE)

Research

In CIE we continue to produce internationally excellent research, often working with partners with strong interests in the development of education - including schools, communities, national governments, international agencies, donor organisations, charitable organisations and NGOs across many parts of the globe.

Our research is clustered around six research themes:

  • Teachers and Quality
  • Governance, Planning and Finance
  • Access and Equity
  • Gender, Identities and Citizenship
  • Education, Conflict and Peacebuilding
  • Refugee Education

These themes encompass all levels of education, including formal and informal systems of learning and development, from pre-school to university to community learning across public, private and non-government organisations.

We are engaged in a wide range of research-related activities, from empirical research, evaluations, reviews and research capacity development and communication. As a research centre, we also have the expertise and experience in a wide range of methodological approaches to research and research-related studies.
