By “accidentally” entering the field of comparative and international education (CIE) more than two decades ago, Ka Ho Mok has emerged as a leading scholar who continues influencing CIE through his research and practical works. More importantly, viewing himself as a comparative policy study scholar instead of a narrow disciplinary specialist, Ka Ho draws from a wealth of disciplinary backgrounds (e.g., sociology, political science, and public and social policy) in his creative works as well as from his comprehensive understanding of China, East Asia, and the Asia-Pacific region. This profile highlights some of Ka Ho’s significant contributions to CIE and illustrates the growth trajectory of a leading CIE scholar to serve as a role model and inspire others interested in pursuing a career in this field.
