THEME


At CIES Stanford, delegates stretched beyond “good versus evil” “you’re “either with us or against us” dichotomies. Voices were raised, Powerpoints hummed and nasty dichotomies went over the fence. But, at the beginning, middle and end of the day, it all boiled down to “learning to live together.” Vancouver is one of the most diverse, multicultural and vibrant cities on earth. If you haven’t been there lately your life is not complete. People there knows heaps about “living together” and, fortunately, UNESCO also realizes the importance of the task. In its 1996 Report (Learning: The Treasure Within), UNESCO identified Learning to Live Together as one of four pillars of life. Throughout the last decade much educational discourse has been captured by (sometimes dodgy) claims about globalization, knowledge-based economies,  human capital formation, benchmarking and best practices. There has been little debate concerning UNESCO’s fourth pillar - Learning to Live Together.  Join us at the flower-besotted drop-dead gorgeous University of British Columbia, September 30th to October 1st, 2005. As usual with CIES, there will be individual-paper and panel-presentations. We’ll accept e-mail submissions. Hence: 

Individual Papers: Your name, your email address, the paper title and an abstract not to exceed 200 words 

Panels: 
The name and email address of the organizer, the panel title, a 200 word overview of the panel,  authors names and paper titles for individual panelists.
