We conduct independent global and country-specific research on the state of education, present and future, often sourcing original data from our parent NGO Professors Without Borders. The objective of our reports is to share our experience in education and development with the public with the aim of raising awareness, improving teaching and influencing policy. Whenever possible, we aim to enhance understanding of important developments and critical insights through the use of nuanced local voices. 

We also publish Book Reviews and Conference Reports that examine how academia addresses the changing landscape of higher education around the world. 

We welcome unsolicited articles and authors who would like to co-author a paper with our network. We are happy to connect writers with relevant researchers who will support them in the development of reports.

Authors can submit articles and any other material they would like to communicate to Caroline Varin at Please do not hesitate to email with your inquiries and report concepts.
