Karen Parish is a PhD candidate at Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences. Her work is contextualised within the comparative and international education discussion surrounding the relationship between the global and the local. She takes as her theoretical framework the institutional logics perspective and explores how the global logic of human rights is embedded within the International Baccalaureate Organisation at different levels of abstraction and in different contexts. In particular she investigates how human rights is experienced and adhered to by students studying the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in different school learning communities in Norway and Poland.
