    With increased globalization, travel and mobility, international student education has become an academically and economically important part of tertiary education around the world. The increased commodification and marketization of higher education complicate the present challenges in ensuring culturally sensitive and competent pedagogies and enabling international students’ educational rights and equal access to opportunities and knowledge. Linking the multifaceted concept of educational rights to international student education and pedagogy, we explore issues related to cultural diversity, safety, vulnerability, welfare, peaceful co-existence in a changing global environment. Opening up further discussions on inclusive, culturally competent and accountable teaching in an unstable and frequently vexed geopolitical space, this introduction argues for an inclusive education that puts learning and social justice at its centre.

    Using the OCIES 44 Conference held in Sydney in 2016 as its conversational springboard, this issue explores emergent gaps in thinking about a number of key issues of concern to comparative and international educationalists.

    These provocations challenge our practice and our postcolonial, postmodern theorizing and educational engagement with these 'gaps'. In doing so, they open up future rewarding and challenging spaces for our future work together.

    The five articles making up this Special Issue respond to OCIES’s vision, thus reflecting the wish of members to revitalise their society by encompassing the diversity of contexts, issues, interests and perspectives represented in Oceania. They also uphold, explicitly or implicitly, many aspects of CIE which have long been highlighted as demonstrating its effectiveness as a research area. Collectively the issue reflects the broadly defined notion of ‘comparison’, the interdisciplinarity and theoretical-methodological eclecticism promoted in much of the CIE literature.

    This Special Edition heralds the rationale for moving from ANZCIES to OCIES, identifying such features as enabling the openness to innovative CIE research approaches and new collaborative research relationships, that have been identified by the new Society as being required to strengthen educational interconnectedness within the relational space of Oceania. Also addressed here are the long espoused CIE concerns for culture and context, of equity and social justice. 

  • Special Edition: 2014 ANZCIES Conference Keynotes and Selected Papers
    Vol. 14 No. 2 (2015)

    This special edition of the 2014 ANZCIES Conference Procedings was edited by Dr Niranjan Casinader and Dr Radha Iyer. They have done a wonderful work to bring this edited collection of Keynotes and a selection of blind peer-reviewed refereed papers together. The papers were originally presented at the conference and all authors have then extended and developed their presentations into full papers.

    On behalf of the Editorial Team of IEJ:CP and all our keynote speakers and authors, I want to express my sincere thanks to Dr Casinader and Dr Iyer for this valuable contribution to the journal.
