Udas, Ken; Stagg, Adrian – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2019
The function of the university in serving the state is the reproduction and legitimization of state functions and behaviours.

Djone, Robertus Raga; Suryani, Anne – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2019
Since Indonesia's transition to democracy in 1998, wealth inequality has increased significantly with a dramatic rise in the wealth of the rich and stagnating income growth among poorer citizens.

Li, Yu-Chih – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2019
Due to its historical and geopolitical contestations, Taiwan is a country whose people possess divergent imaginations of the national community. Such a condition has been described as institutional liminality, which captures Taiwan's status as not a complete nation state nor a non-nation state; not China nor non-China. Under such a condition,…

Bunn, Matthew; Lumb, Matt – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2019
In this paper, we problematize current conceptualizations of agency in education. We begin by considering how the construction of the hyperindividual, one that is entirely determined by its own internal capacities, has become the norm within Australian educational policy. We propose that this conceptualization produces undemocratic educational…

Tuia, Tagataese Tupu – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2018
Education in Samoa is strongly influenced by western theories of teaching and learning.

The transition to an independent state led Samoa to seek help in restructuring its…

English is an important medium for global communication but its use in different communities is inevitably shaped by their local languages and cultures.

The study reported on in this paper aims to understand, challenge, and deconstruct what the "Local" means for the development of Indigenous education in Taiwan. More precisely, it will question the idea of the Local in this context, as Indigenous people do not necessarily all hold similar views about Local Indigeneity and its place in…

Fa'avae, David Taufui Mikato – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2018
Researching and theorizing the local in education is often a contested space linked to deficit views of indigenous people by "others".
