About ICE

The International and Comparative Education (ICE) Research Group, initiated and led by Dr. Phan Le Ha, Senior Professor, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Insitute of Education (SHBIE), Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD), is dedicated to the study of educational systems globally as well as of established and emerging phenomena in education in the context of community and regional building, globalisation, internationalisation, digitalisation, transnationality and mobilities of people, ideas, technologies, practices, anxieties and aspirations.

It brings together scholars and researchers from multiple disciplines across UBD as well as internationally to build scholarship and pedagogy, cultivate research ideas, work on projects, create knowledge and publications, and engage societies in on-going dialogues related to ICE in its broadest sense. It also reaches out to ministries, higher education institutions, schools and other organisations to involve them in research, professional training and community engagement activities, so as to build a community of researchers, policy makers, professionals and individuals with shared intellectual interests and agendas.


ICE has core members from multiple faculties across the University including education, arts and social sciences, humanities, Islamic studies, Southeast Asian studies, and language and linguistics. In addition to these core members, ICE also appoints affiliate members from other local entities and universities around the world. Altogether, ICE is committed to growing into a dynamic intellectual home in Asia, Asia-Pacific and the Gulf regions as well as in its home of the Borneo island encompassing vast population from Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia.
