Global Public Seminars in Comparative and International Education address themes of major interest to academics, practitioners, and policy-makers working in the field of education globally. These seminars illuminate the role of education in societal development, with a focus on understanding changes in education policy, discourse, and practice, and how these changes influence individual opportunities and shape the development of educational institutions around the world. Seminars zoom into the local and zoom out into the national and supranational spaces, flows, and influences on education.

Aliya Kuzhabekova is Associate Professor at Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan.

In this talk, Aliya Kuzhabekova will report on the results of a collaborative project exploring how individuals, who received Ph.D. degrees abroad transition to research environment in their home countries.

In particular, the aim of the comparative study was to develop a better understanding about how returnees, who obtained degrees in countries with high levels of research capacity re-integrated in the research environment of countries with lower levels of research capacities.

In addition, the project team tried to reveal the extent to which the returnees served as change agents transforming the research environment in their countries. The study allowed to obtain comparative insights about cross-country and program-related variations in the returnees’ adjustment experiences.
