Lambrev, Veselina; Traykov, Bozhin; Kirova, Anna – International Studies in Sociology of Education, 2018
This article uses the case of Bulgarian, predominantly Roma, schools to illustrate the long history of stereotypes about Roma people dating back to modernity's discursive binary oppositions of 'civilized' vs. 'barbarians.'

Wood, Bronwyn E.; Black, Rosalyn – International Studies in Sociology of Education, 2018
Contemporary global flows of people, ideas and capital have led to profound changes in transnational interactions, affinities, forms of sociality and understandings of citizenship.

Rudolph, Sophie; Chatelier, Stephen – International Studies in Sociology of Education, 2018
For some scholars and commentators, the era of globalisation represented a new border-less age. However, the continuing legacy of colonial expansion through contemporary forms of imperialism and mass movement of migrants and refugees, has ensured that, in today's globalised world, the relevance of the border is growing, not declining. Indeed, the…

Oliver, Caroline; Hughes, Vanessa – International Studies in Sociology of Education, 2018
Immigration policy in the UK restricts migrants' eligibility to some services and benefits, including in the sphere of education.

Dyer, Caroline – International Studies in Sociology of Education, 2018
This paper extends and enriches debates on migration, borders and education by conceptualising education inclusion as a border regime.

It argues that education inclusion signifies a new…
