The Centre for International Education Research (CIER) sees education as a site of study for wider, contested processes such as development, globalisation and technological change.

Its members believe that education is a lifelong and lifewide process that should promote social justice, equality, citizenship and democracy.

Centre members have conducted research in all regions of the world and have worked closely with a range of international organisations, most notably UNESCO.
