Comparative and International Education Society Annual Meeting

March 5-9, 2017 in Atlanta, GA

The Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) Annual Meeting is a gathering of Society members and the interested public for an academic research conference devoted to scholarly and practical exchange as well as debate and networking.  This year’s conference theme is “Problematizing (In)Equality: The Promise of Comparative and International Education.”  CIES 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 3000 academics, students, practitioners, and policymakers from around the world.

FIU recently became the headquarters for CIES when Hilary Landorf was appointed its Executive Director, Mariusz Galczynski was named its Managing Director, and CIES’s administrative office  moved to the university’s Office of Global Learning Initiatives.
