Local/Global Issues in Education

Local/Global Issues in Education investigates the interplay between the local and the global in contemporary education policy and practice. While processes of globalisation are transforming local education systems, the local cannot be conceived of as homogeneous or passive.  Local policy advocates, educators and researchers mediate processes of globalisation by adapting, resisting and amplifying its effects and influences. Local/Global Issues in Education publishes high-quality empirical, theoretical and 

conceptual work that uses both qualitative and quantitative methods to contribute to ongoing education debates. Sponsored by AARE, 

this book series includes work that emanates from Australia that speaks to these global issues. Conversely, while expecting all books in the series to bear relevance to the Australian context, the series also welcomes proposals that are more broadly focused on global trends and directions in education from researchers working outside the Australian context. 

Proposals for edited collections and monographs to be published within the series are invited from members of the education research community.

The 2017 Call for Proposals is now open, closing on June 30, 2017. To view proposal requirements and instructions for submission, please download the guidelines here.
