IEJ: Comparative Perspectives is an international journal for advancing academic quality and rigor in comparative and international education research. It is the official journal of the Australia and New Zealand Comparative and International Education Society (ANZCIES). IEJ seeks to promote discussion of the relationships among educational policy and practice, theory, and cross-disciplinary global studies. A further intent is to integrate research findings from comparative, international, and global issues in education that place particular emphasis on cultural contexts.
