BAICE 2020’s focus is on past, present and future collaborations across a wide range of subthemes to conceptualise joint ventures in comparative and international education more robustly. We are interested in papers that will: help to identify new possibilities for collaborations in education; critique, question and challenge accepted wisdom and practice; and provide inspiration to think about the different ways that stakeholders in education can work together. The conference sub-themes are:

  • Global-local nexus of education
  • Partnerships beyond formal schooling
  • Experiencing education
  • Technology: realising educational potential and a new autonomy
  • Education partnerships in conflict and protracted crises
  • Partnerships around the provision and financing of education

As always, BAICE welcomes 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. If you have an idea for a submission that does not link to a named subtheme, but resonates with the overarching focus of the conference, please mark it as ‘open theme’ on the form.

Participation in the conference can take several forms:

  • A full paper presentation (15 minutes with time for questions and discussion)
  • A short/quick-fire paper presentation (5 minutes for posing ideas or questions as a stimulus for discussion)
  • A panel symposium (a collection of 3-4 related papers)
  • A facilitator for a round table in our discussion café where we will be hosting informal open sessions on a particular issue
  • A poster presentation
