EiE events at CIES 2022

Organized by
CIES - Comparative and International Education Society
18 — 22 April 2022
Research and Evidence

“Education is the point at which we decide whether we love the world enough to assume responsibility for it and by the same token save it from that ruin, which except for renewal, except for the coming of the new and young, would be inevitable.” (Hannah Arendt, Between Past and Future, p. 193). 

The CIES 2022 theme Illuminating the Power of Idea/lism arises from the intersection of two immutable realities of our time and the impact both are having on the field of comparative and international education. The first is our global experience with the COVID-19 pandemic. The second is the rise of nativism and fundamentalism representing both ideological rigidity and political divisiveness. The CIES 2022 theme seeks to find ways to address these challenges by bringing forward new ideas with a sense of idealism in the work we do as educationists.
