The Centre for Comparative and International Research in Education (CIRE) is based at the School of Education, University of Bristol.

It focuses on education, international development and comparative research aimed at developing theoretical and comparative methodological innovations so as to address contemporary issues relating to the improvement of education quality in low income, fragile contexts and small states. We are particularly concerned to develop sustainable solutions to learning and social justice for marginalised groups, and to problematize the international transfer of educational policy ideas.
