As the year draws to a close, I’ve invited Susan Robertson and Mario Novelli to reflect on the past 12 months. What were the big events in 2022 and how might they impact the field of comparative and international education? We discuss a range of issues from protests to conflict to elections. We even touch on a few existential issues. I hope you enjoy the conversation and wish you a happy and safe new year.

Mario Novelli is professor in the political economy of education at the University of Sussex. Susan Robertson is a professor of sociology of education. They co-edit the journal Globalisation, Societies and Education.
