Nordic Internationalists' Contribution to the Field of Comparative and International Education
Genova, Teodora
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (14th, Sofia, Bulgaria, Jun 14-17, 2016)
This paper stems from a PhD dissertation research focusing on the Nordic representatives' contribution to the field of comparative and international education (CIE) since the middle of the 20th century to the present days. Following the idea of the clear-cut distinction between the two component parts of the field in the region in question, the purpose of this study is to identify and point out the key achievements of six Nordic internationalists in the field of CIE from Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. Firstly, they are regarded as a group which collaborated and rallied around the Nordic Association for the Study of Education in Developing Countries (NASEDEC) for nearly 20 years. In this respect, the crucial role of the national donor agencies, which assist developmental aid to education in financing and promoting international research, is examined. Secondly, the work and research activities of the internationalists under review are analyzed in order to find the individual contributions to the field and their prevailing characteristics. Thus, by making an attempt at searching for the internationalists' scientific achievements, the author finds what the applied development of the field of CIE in the Nordic countries looks like.
