Globalization and increasing diversity around the world have spawned expanding comparative research on equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). Comparative and multi-country EDI research can assist with construct development and theory testing, informing best practices, development of an index, typology or continuum, and identifying patterns and trends. Drawing from our collective experiences, we discuss the purpose, types and methodological issues related to comparative and multi-country EDI work. We also offer suggestions on emerging topics on EDI and the appropriate methodologies to undertake multi-country research. We note that comparative research work on EDI can be challenging and rewarding, also more importantly, it can lead to interesting findings and ground-breaking discoveries.
