Global Comparative and International Education Forum
The GlobalCIE, founded in 2016 at the XVI World Congress of Comparative Education Societies, is a worldwide organisation comprised of individual and society members. Its purpose is to promote comparative and international education research, cooperate and knowledge-share with its vast network of international, regional and national bodies, and strengthen research in the field through closer partnerships between publishing bodies, foundations, and granting bodies.
Goal and Objectives
The GlobalCIE serves the professional communities of comparative and international education globally. It pursues the following three objectives:
The activities of GlobalCIE include:
Constitution and Governance
The first meeting of the founding members of GlobalCIE will be launched during the CIES conference 2017 in Atlanta. Representatives of national and regional associations and special interest groups in comparative and international education are invited to participate with a view to adopting an initial constitution that will be based on a consensus building approach and subject to intensive review over the early years of the association. There will be a discussion of constitutional issues before the CIES meeting in Atlanta to adapt a publicly available model constitution tailored to the specific needs of GlobalCIE. Volunteers who wish to engage in this discussion, either individuals or representatives of interested societies, are welcome to join the group. Those wishing to join in this new initiative are invited to provide contact details to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The strength of GlobalCIE rests in how member skills are best utilized and in meeting the needs of its members. It is envisioned that the Founding Board will elect a President, Vice President, Secretary-Treasurer and Board. The GlobalCIE Board will include members who advise on policy matters, including the development of a constitution and by-laws, and will provide liaison to other like-minded organisations.
