Introducing a new book series from SUNY Press, published in collaboration with the Comparative & International Education Society (CIES).

This new series is aimed at early career scholars, wishing to publish their PhD research as their first monograph, as well as more experienced researchers, studying comparative and international education issues, defined in its broadest sense.

The partnership between a leading university press and the most prominent professional association of researchers working in international and comparative education is unique – ensuring the advancement of key debates, theoretical innovations, and empirical insights into emerging issues in the field.

The editors (Laura Engel—George Washington University, US; Miri Yemini—Tel Aviv University, Israel; and Claire Maxwell—University of Copenhagen, Denmark) work very closely with Rebecca Colesworthy (SUNY Press) to ensure all contracted authors are supported throughout the process to produce excellent monographs.

Please send us an email ( for an informal discussion about an idea for a book, or with an already developed proposal. We welcome a range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives on the study of education, different methodological approaches, and scholarship that is targeted at different stakeholders.

In the pipeline so far, we have books examining issues of schooling for child laborers in Bangladesh, how global education ideas are being taken up across Latin America, and conceptualizations and implementations of Global Citizenship Education around the world.

Please get in touch! We look forward to hearing from you.
