The Comparative and International Education Society of Canada/Société canadienne d’éducation comparée et internationale (CIESC/SCECI) was established in Ottawa on 5 June 1967 as a bilingual organization, to encourage and promote comparative and international studies in Canadian education.

We are looking forward to a rich and full program at CSSE in May 2017, and to celebrate this occasion with a number of exciting themed panels and presentations. Thematically, given the current rise of inter- or trans-national educational activities in a globalizing world, we pose the question: what does the evolving field of comparative education have to offer in terms of conceptual resources?

We also ask : what are some of the productive methodological approaches and generative theoretical constructs coming from other fields that are or might be taken up in CIE studies?
