The Centre for Education and International Development (CEID) Annual Conference 2018
Higher Education and International Development
Call for papers
Higher education has been included in the Sustainable Development Goals, and there is broad acknowledgement of its role in building just and prosperous societies. However, there is a lack of rigorous research on higher education in most lower-income countries, meaning that evidence is often insufficient to bring about policy changes. Furthermore, there are a number of contested trends in policy and practice, such as the growing presence of private providers, the emergence of new technologies (including MOOCs), international rankings and concentration of research capacity in elite institutions. Hosted by the Centre for Education and International Development (UCL Institute of Education), this conference brings together academics and policymakers to present cutting-edge research in the field, discuss key issues and debate the role of higher education in sustainable development.
