    Welcome to the newly established Nordic Journal of Comparative and International Education (NJCIE). In the first year, 2017, the journal had more than 4,000 readers from 50 different countries.

    NJCIE is concerned with the interplay of local, national, regional and global contexts which are shaping education.

  • Special Issue Fall 2018 coming soon!



    Volume 2, issue 2-3

    Theme: Leading and organising education for citizenship of the world – through technocratic homogenisation or communicative diversity?

    Guest editors: Lejf Moos (Aarhus University), Elisabet Nihlfors (Uppsala University), Jan Merok Paulsen (Oslo Metropolitan University)

    This special issue discusses governance, leadership and education in the light of Nordic ideas about general education and citizenship of the world. Particular focus is placed on the battle between two very different discourses in contemporary educational policy and practice: an outcomes/standard-based discourse, and a general education-based discourse of Citizenship of the World.
