Education in a Globalized World

The conference is framed by two driving questions connecting education and globalization: What implications does globalization have for education? And, what is the role of education in a globalized world?
The conference aims to explore how educational research, practice, and policy are affected by contemporary societal changes by inviting contributions that engage with how globalization interplays with fundamental conditions of education.
