Re-Examining the Meaning of Education in an Uncertain World

Oxford Symposium for Comparative and International Education Department of Education and St. Antony's College | University of Oxford

The Centre for Comparative and International Education, in the Department of Education at the University of Oxford, has partnered with the Aga Khan Foundation and the Global Centre for Pluralism to host OXSCIE 2017. 150 delegates from 21 countries have been invited to consider the features of uncertainty and debate the nature of the educational response to some of the most pressing concerns facing children, today.

Our aim is to build a new interdisciplinary intellectual framework that guides debate about the meaning of learning and mission of education in an uncertain and unpredictable world.
