The Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) is a scholarly association dedicated to increasing the understanding of educational issues, trends and policies through comparative, cross-cultural and international perspectives. Its nearly 3,500 individual members–researchers, analysts, practitioners and students–use different conceptual frameworks to explore topics related to education. These include a focus on schools, students, teachers and administrators, and on issues spanning early childhood and basic education to secondary and higher education, as well as non-formal education and life-long learning. Since its founding in 1956 as the first comparative education society in the world, the CIES has grown into a dynamic professional association. Nearly half its members are younger scholars and practitioners who are learning to apply theories and methods of the social sciences and history to address the world’s most intractable educational problems. The CIES also sponsors an outstanding peer-reviewed journal in the field, the Comparative Education Review.
