Social Responsibility within Changing Contexts

As we enter the third decade of the 21st century, we are experiencing rapid changes in political, economic, environmental, cultural, and social spaces, including an expansion of non-state actors in the field and new social movements. These changes influence education globally and locally. 


Against this background, CIES 2021 calls for revisiting the relationships among context, actors, visions, and action; and invites a renewed attention to social responsibility and the ethical practice of education and policy development.


The final programme will be published in December. VVOB has been accepted to a panel on remedial teaching, with colleague Anne-Thora Vardoy-Mutale sharing experiences on Teaching at the Right Level in Zambia. Two additional submissions are still under review.
