Held in Toronto, Canada – home to one of the most cosmopolitan populations of any major city in the world – this year’s program will include exciting keynote addresses and a range of events that will highlight the conference theme and engage all of our membership.

CIES 2014 "Revisioning Education for All"

March 10-15, 2014

Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel

For more than half a century, the notion of “education for all” has formed an aspirational horizon for national policy makers and global governors in education. The phrase first emerged at the time of the formation of UNESCO, alongside the recognition of education as a universal human right. “Education for all” returned as the central organizing theme for World Conferences in Jomtien (1990) and in Senegal (2000). It continues to frame global social imaginaries about the actionable links between learning systems and social justice. Yet almost seventy years later, global institutions, national policy makers, civil society organizations and citizens struggle and compete to give tangible meaning to EFA.
