Cancun, Mexico

XVII World Congress of Comparative Education Societies
to be held in Cancun, Mexico in 2019

We invite comparative education societies to work upon the far and the near future of education, either with a global or a local perspective. To re-think about the ends of education, to make reflections about pedagogies, about the curriculum of the future, the future profile of families and learners, or their new educational settings, or about the fate of teacher training, future scenarios portray so many topics for comparative education.
