This exciting new issue of JEiE includes five research articles, one field note, and four book reviews. It features a diverse cohort of authors who employ a wide range of methodologies and disciplinary approaches. Three pieces shine new light on refugees’ experiences with education in kindergarten, in adolescence, and in higher education. A special sub-section on education administration in postconflict societies offers three articles that comment on reforms to education systems that are embedded in intrastate peace agreements, on policy transfer, and on the complex interrelationship between identity, ethnicity, and control over territory, and over education within a territory.
