The power of protest in education lies in the fact that it is, by definition, a public act. Protest allows people facing injustice to generate power through collective action. For many, this kind of protest carries the hope and promise that, to use the slogan of the World Social Forum in 2001, “another world is possible.” It is a declaration that all is not well in the world, and that the status quo must be challenged and changed. Struggles of this kind often situate education as a human right and endeavour to bring about more just and inclusive educational futures. Here too, the wider conditions for learning and working in schools and universities around the world have also been the subject of protests over the years.

As a community of Comparative and International Education researchers, teachers, activists, programme developers or organisers, how might we engage with, and think generatively about, the histories, curriculum, theories and methodologies, and pedagogies that guide acts of protest?  Our hope is the CIES 2024 Conference in Miami held online (March 6-7) and onsite (March 10-14) will inspire debates, dialogues, and future collective actions.
