The Comparative Education Society in Europe (CESE) is an international nonprofit making association of scientific and educational character. CESE was founded in 1961 in London and is a founding society of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES). CESE has traditionally promoted a space for dialogue amongst scholars, specialists and young researchers from the field of education and other disciplines. More specifically, its purpose is to encourage and promote comparative and international studies in education by:
• promoting and improving the teaching of comparative education in institutions of higher learning;
• stimulating research;
• facilitating the publication and distribution of comparative studies in education;
• interesting professors and teachers of other disciplines in the comparative and international dimension of their work;
• co-operating with those who in other disciplines attempt to interpret educational developments in a broad context;
• organising conferences and meetings;
• collaborating with other Comparative Education Societies across the world in order to further international action in this field.

Every two years CESE organises an international conference of high scholarly standards which attracts academics, scholars, practitioners and students from all parts of Europe and around the world. Throughout its history, CESE has organised twenty-four such conferences, a special conference for the 25th anniversary of the Society, a symposium, and two ‘CESE In-Betweens’. In-Betweens are international symposia organised between the biennial conferences. A web site of CESE is maintained at
