CRESJ to host 2018 BAICE conference

Posted on 13 November 2017

We are delighted that the BAICE conference 2018 will be held at the University of York, Convened by Dr Eleanor Brown.

CRESJ are delighted to announce that we will be hosting the British Association for International and Comparative Education (BAICE) conference 12th-14th September 2018, convened by Dr Eleanor Brown. This conference is supported by the Research Centre for Social Sciences, the Justice and Equality Research Theme and the York International Development Network.

The aim of this conference is to consider how central concepts in the field of comparative and international education – such as development, sustainability and global social justice– can be reimagined in order to offer new trajectories for educational research, policy and practice. The conference welcome papers that discuss comparative and international education, formal and non-formal learning at primary, secondary and tertiary level or adult education, across all global regions including high, middle and low-income countries. Papers which reflect on innovative or alternative approaches, or transformative initiatives that challenge inequalities or provide solutions to social challenges, are all encouraged. In particular we are calling for papers that will help us to identify possibilities for education, that critique, question and challenge accepted wisdom and provide inspiration to think about the role of education in different ways.

The call for papers deadline is 1st February 2018. A short 300 word abstract is required and a range of presentation styles are encouraged. For more information please go to the BAICE Website:

Save the date and most importantly submit your abstracts early, this is going  to be a fantastic event and we hope to see many of you there!
