Bjorn Nordtveit, leading a team of eight co-editors, assumed editorship for the Comparative Education Review (CER) as of July 1, 2013, for an initial five-year term. The editorial board includes Cristine Smith as one of the co-editors and Jacqueline Mosselson as the book and media review editor. In addition, five co-editors from partner institutions participate: Kathryn Anderson-Levitt (UCLA), Stephen Carney (Roskilde University, Denmark), Amita Chudgar (Michigan State University), Robin Shields (University of Bath, UK) and Elizabeth M. King (The Brookings Institution). Graduate students assist with the publication in various ways. Current CIE students involved with the journal are Mei Lan Frame, Stephanie Pirroni, and Lina Heaster-Ekholm, all managing editors, as well as Nolizwe Mhlaba as the book and media review managing editor. All four have extensive experience working in education in different countries.


The Comparative Education Review, founded in 1957, is the premier journal in the field of comparative and international education in the U.S. and is the official journal of the Comparative and International Society (CIES). It is a peer-reviewed journal and is published quarterly. The Center for International Education is proud to be associated with the ongoing history and development of this well-respected journal.


One of the goals of the current editorial team is to bring new attention to international scholarship, with a special focus on power relations as they relate to knowledge production and circulation in the field.
