You are warmly invited to submit a Written Response to the CIES 2023 Theme Improving Education for a More Equitable World. This is a 6,000-9,000 word essay addressing anything meaningful around the theme, covering one or more of the three broad areas, i.e., improvement and equity (and social justice) in comparative/international education. You are also encouraged to touch on one of our Thematic Guiding Questions or any other critical questions regarding the CIES 2023 theme.
All submissions should be sent as a MS Word attachment to email@example.com, with Written Response in your Subject line. Please follow APA style with a cover page including your full name, passport-style photo, affiliations, title for your written response, and a complete reference list ending your essay.

As a by-product, Written Responses will be planned for an edited volume or a special issue after our annual gathering in 2023!
