The Bloomsbury Handbook of Method in Comparative and International Education

Matthew A. M. Thomas

This handbook provides an overview of research concepts, methodologies, approaches, and methods used regularly in the field of comparative and international education. As an interdisciplinary field, CIE does not espouse a singular or consistent research method. Instead, researchers generally utilize or are inspired by approaches from a wide range of disciplines, including economics, anthropology, sociology, political science, philosophy, and more. Given this diversity, this book helps readers understand the unique ways researchers employ method in comparative and international education.

The handbook includes contributions from leading researchers based in Australia, Japan, Norway, Spain, the UK, the USA, etc., and each chapter includes a practical research example focused on a common topic throughout the book. It includes four sections covering core concepts, methodology, approaches, and methods and analysis, with chapters as diverse as autoethnography, Indigenous approaches, international large-scale assessments, and social network analysis, among others. The book is a partner volume to the Bloomsbury Handbook of Theory in Comparative and International Education.
