Welcome Message from WCCES President Professor N’Dri T. Assié-Lumumba for XVII World Congress of Comparative Education Societies to be held in Cancún, Mexico during 20-24 May 2019

WCCES President N’Dri Thérèse Assié-Lumumba, Professor in the Africana Studies and Research Center at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA, invites the comparative education and wider community to attend the WCCES XVII Congress in Cancún (Mexico), May 20-24, 2019

Greetings, Bonjour, Hola, 你好, السلام عليكم, Привет!

As President of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES), I am delighted to invite you, on behalf of WCCES, to join the global community of Comparative Education and all scholars and practitioners interested in the different types and levels of education, ranging from pre-school up to the University level, to actively participate in the XVII World Congress of Comparative Education Societies that will take place in Cancún (Mexico) from May 20th to May 24th, 2019. The theme of this Congress is: the Future of Education.

Several reputable scholars and practitioners from across the globe have defined 11 thematic groups under this general theme of the Future of Education. These 11 thematic groups address topics of critical importance pertaining to the future of schooling, pedagogies and curriculum, education technology, the nature of teaching and learning, teachers and students, and the relationship between education and other key social institutions such as the family and the economy particularly the meaning of work and professions, and the field of comparative education.

Submit your abstracts for individual papers and panels under any of these 11 thematic groups and also any other dimension of education that may not easily fit under these groups. The Congress will offer a platform for deliberations on the role of education, especially in comparative perspectives, in addressing effectively the challenges and fostering possibilities to promote acquisition of more relevant knowledge including technical skills and values and policies for building and sustaining a more just and inclusive peaceful world that recognizes and nurtures our common humanity, as it is captured in the Ubuntu paradigm. You are all invited to take part in this exciting gathering.

A team of world-renowned and highly dedicated scholars and practitioners serving as officers of the WCCES and La Sociedad Mexicana de Educación Comparada (SOMEC), which is leading the local/Mexican organizing committee with many enthusiastic volunteers, will make the Cancún Congress successful and memorable. Kindly consult the WCCES XVII Congress Website, http://2019worldcongress.org/, to obtain vital information including details on the submission procedure, registration, accommodation, important deadlines and sight-seeing around Cancún and other locations across Mexico. The Congress venue of Cancún is spectacularly beautiful and family friendly. We encourage you to come with your loved ones to take part in the vibrant intellectual deliberations and enjoy a memorable experience. We look forward to welcoming you in Cancún. See you there!

Thank you, Merci, Gracias, 谢谢, شكرًا, Спасибо
