Description: This Talanoa will explore the history of OCIES (Oceanic Comparative and International Education Society) from its early years to the present, as well as situate it within the global field of Comparative and International Education (CIE).

What is a Talanoa?
A talanoa is a conversation that explores themes or matters of importance, and one in which all participants are free to speak openly in a safe, accepting, and non-confrontational space. The conversation is characterised by the core values of respectful relationality, reciprocity and empathy. Talanoa is respectful of different viewpoints and advances knowledge while it simultaneously builds relationships and invites collaboration.
