Congress Theme: The Future of Education
Cancúnis a well known cosmopolitan place with an average of 180 conferences per year and flights to the main cities of the world. The accommodation capacity and restaurants, together with the turquoise color of the seas and the white of the sands, make a great venue for our world conference. The government of the state of Quintana Roo, as well as a number of universities, together with the Sociedad Mexicana de Educación Comparada (SOMEC), are working towards providing with the nicest facilities to ease our academic work.
The XVII World Congress of Comparative Education Societies inCancún, Mexico will give you a unique opportunity to visit fantastic nearby sites, such as Chichén Itzá, recently named one of the new Seven Wonders of the World and cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO.
We invite comparative education societies, scholars, practitioners, and teachers 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.

46th Annual OCIES Conference
Will be held at
Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand.
20-22 November, 2018
The theme of the 46th Annual OCIES Conference is Exploring, Celebrating and Deepening Oceanic Relationalities. This theme offers OCIES members and others as comparative and international educators to reflect on the gains, challenges and possibilities of our changing times. As a society of Oceanic education scholars, we are aware of our moral imperative to explore these challenges in a manner which reflects our shared commitment to people-enablement, post-coloniality, deimperialization, the recognition of Indigenous rights, social justice and various forms of sustainability. Given the visionary platform of OCIES relationalities, this year’s conference encourages and welcomes the participation of all who are interested in people-relationalities within diverse philosophical perspectives, intellectual traditions and contexts. Together with OCIES members, those of our sister and international comparative and international education societies are invited to this conference.
A detailed conference call will be made further; outlining the thematic questions, contexts of papers and proposals, key dates and submission guidelines. For now, pencil in the conference dates, plan your travels and we look forward to hosting you at Victoria University of Wellington and in Aotearoa New Zealand.
