We welcome papers that discuss comparative and international education, formal and non-formal learning at primary, secondary and tertiary level or adult education, across all global regions including high, middle and low-income countries. Papers which reflect on innovative or alternative approaches, or transformative initiatives that challenge inequalities or provide solutions to social challenges, are all encouraged. We are calling for papers that will help us to identify possibilities for education, that critique, question and challenge accepted wisdom and provide inspiration to think about the role of education in different ways.
