The Sixth Worldwide Forum for Comparative Education

Two hundred years of comparative education: nation-state, globalization and disciplinary development.

Sept. 23-24, 2017
Beijing, China

In 1817 in France's "Education Journal," Marc-Antoine Jullien de Paris published the series "A Sketch and Preliminary View of a Work on Comparative Education", thus establishing the field of comparative education. Over the past 200 years, comparative education has experienced different stages of development and achieved fruitful research results. It has deepened mutual understanding and promoted international exchange and cooperation in education. Now, at the beginning of its third century, comparative education is facing new challenges and new development opportunities. What road will the future development of Comparative Education take? And what historical mission should it play in the agenda of national development and global governance? These questions are worthy of the world's Comparative Education scholars' in-depth consideration.

On September 23rd -24th, 2017, the institute will convene the Sixth Worldwide Comparative Education Forum with the theme "Two Hundred Years of Comparative Education: Nation-State, Globalization, Disciplinary Development".
