CEP (Critical Education Policy)

CEP is a Research Group at the Manchester Institute of Education.

We undertake policy scholarship that explores the power relations produced through education policy.

We also describe, explain and theorise the significance and implications of these relations for people such as education professionals and children, institutions such as schools and universities, and concepts such as public educationequity, internationalisation and leadership.

Key questions include:

  • Who benefits from the current arrangements?
  • Whose interests are marginalised?

We focus our research through 3 Special Interest Groups (SIGs):

  1. Organisation and Leadership
  2. Higher Education
  3. Internationalisation

We explore:

The subject and/or outcomes of policy, and its formation and enactment.
