The aim of the course is to provide doctoral research students opportunities to explore the intersections between education policy, discourse and comparative inquiry in contemporary society. Issues addressing theory based justifications of comparative policy research and particularly, its discursive manifestations at international, state and institutional levels will be critically examined. The course content is offered in a series of five monthly face to face sessions. Within the realms of the learning objectives and course aims, the course assessment consists of a near final written paper for publication.
