Welcome to CRICE!
Centre for Research in International and Comparative Education
The Centre for Research in International and Comparative Education (CRICE) embodies a focus on research in international and comparative issues in education that affect educational policies and practice, broadly defined. Some prominent issues may include, among others, education in the knowledge economy at all scales from global to local; education provision issues such as efficiency, effectiveness, access/equity, gender, culture and religion as well as teaching and learning. The Centre focuses on, but not be restricted to, South East Asia. It is envisioned that the Centre will help overcome the relative dearth of research in this field in South East Asia. Globally there is a realisation that Interdisciplinary study and research is the way forward. Consequently the Centre will also examine how related and contributing disciplines to educational studies (such as history, economics, geography and sociology) help to analyse and explain education systems and contribute to their improvement.
