International Educational Conference

    International Education Conference 2012

Advancing Global Education in Austere Times

Welcome!

The International Education program at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development is pleased to host its Seventh Annual International Education conference. 

Conference Theme

This year’s conference, "Advancing Global Education in Austere Times," seeks to bring together academics and practitioners from a variety of disciplines to discuss the impact of a global climate of austerity on the provision of education.   Improving quality and extending access remain aspirations at all levels of education globally, but cuts to public spending and international development assistance will undoubtedly affect these objectives.  Specifically, we seek to explore:

  • How does austerity affect the development, implementation and evaluation of education in different contexts?   Who are the main actors in these processes and what are their roles?
  • How does the impact of austerity vary globally?  Does austerity hinder the provision of education or can it be beneficial?
  • Are there constructive responses to austerity measures for academics and practitioners to undertake?   Where and to whom can we look for these ideas?
