Events Highlights: NORRAG at CIES 2022 "Illuminating the power of idea/lism"

The NORRAG team participated in this year’s Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) Annual Conference which took place both virtually and in-person in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA from 18 April to 22 April 2022. This year’s CIES conference theme was Illuminating the Power of Idealism. NORRAG representatives presented during four panel discussions and four paper sessions (in bold). The below sessions have been organised following the five NORRAG themes: Network, Data and evidence, Education and the SDGs, Innovations and disruptions and Private sector approaches.

Network

Tuesday 19 April 2022: CIES is one of the rare opportunities to bring together many of our network members face-to-face. This year, NORRAG, UNESCO-IBE and UNESCO-IIEP co-hosted a reception at CIES. The event was very well attended, particularly by researchers from the Global South, and students and early career researchers, as well as long standing NORRAG members, partners and supporters, including Senior Fellows and Consultative Committee members. We celebrated: 

  • NORRAG’s 45th anniversary working at the intersection of education research and policy and promoting knowledge equity between the South and North, launching #TheSouthAlsoKnows and our new decentralised network tool; 
  • UNESCO-IBE’s latest strategy in its long standing mission (since 1929, as the first international organisation dedicated to education) to support curriculum, teaching, learning and assessment processes and outcomes; and 
  • UNESCO-IIEP’s support (since 1963) to Ministries of Education in planning and managing their education systems to ensure strong implementation of education reforms

Data and evidence
