This special issue is concerned with theory and practice of gifted education in developing and threshold countries. This subject is especially topical since it became increasingly obvious that the Western models of gifted education cannot be simply transferred to other cultures. Consequently, the last years have witnessed a considerable effort of developing and threshold countries to find their own distinct approaches to gifted education.
