CIES 2024
The Power Of Protest


Join us in Miami!

The power of protest in education lies in the fact that it is, by definition, a public act. Protest allows people facing injustice to generate power through collective action. As a community of Comparative and International Education researchers, teachers, activists, programme developers or organisers, how might we engage with, and think generatively about, the histories, curriculum, theories and methodologies, and pedagogies that guide acts of protest? Our hope is the CIES 2024 Conference in Miami held online (March 6-7) and onsite (March 10-14) will inspire debates, dialogues, and future collective actions.


CIES invites proposals that respond to the meeting theme and expand the parameters of knowledge production and educational practice. Check this site frequently to stay updated!

CIES 2024

We are so excited to be hosting on-site sessions in Miami, Florida for CIES 2024. On-site, you will experience a full meeting with powerful keynote speakers, plenary situations designed to renew bonds between CIES attendees, social and cultural events, and of course, the main draw of the meeting, concurrent sessions featuring cutting-edge research from our CIES members. The Online Meeting Hub, enhanced from last year, is the only platform that will be used to allow all attendees (including both on-site and virtual participants) to enjoy online sessions. There will be no livestreaming at CIES 2024.

Please visit our website regularly for the latest updates. After your submission, please log into our Online Submission System (i.e., All Academic). There you can review the draft program, read about our highlights, and register for the conference.
