The Comparative and International Education Society (CIES), Inc., was founded in 1956 to foster cross-cultural understanding, scholarship, academic achievement and societal development through the international study of educational ideas, systems, and practices. The Society’s members include over 3,000 academics, students, practitioners, and policymakers from around the world. Please visit the CIES website at www.cies.us for more information on the Society and to become a member.
The CIES Annual Conference is an academic conference attended by researchers, students, practitioners and policy makers interested in comparative and international education. Each CIES conference has a theme that is intended to serve as a broad umbrella under which a wide range of work can be presented, while still yielding the consolidation and advancement of knowledge. As Academic Chair of the 2018 CIES conference, President-Elect Professor Regina Cortina (Teachers College, Columbia University), has set the 2018 conference theme as “Re-Mapping Global Education: South-North Dialogue.” Read the full Call for Papers here and explore the website for more information about the conference.
The 62nd CIES Annual Conference will take place in Mexico City, Mexico from March 25-29, 2018.
