    Comparative and International Education

    A Journey toward Equality and Equity

    Nelly P. Stromquist
    In this article, Nelly Stromquist examines the trajectory of the Comparative and International Education (CIE) field over the past several decades. In this effort, she reviews the major journals in CIE over the many years of their existence and draws from her own professional experience, including five years as the associate editor for the Comparative Education Review. Asserting that educational systems should seek to have positive effects on society by providing essential skills and promoting social mobility and inclusion of all citizens, Stromquist focuses this article on issues of equality and equity in the comparative and international education context. The author calls for more cooperation between researchers and practitioners as well as between the North and South.
