The International Education program at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development is pleased to host its Eighth Annual International Education conference.

This year’s conference, “International Education in Emergency Response and Crisis Situations" seeks to bring together professionals from a variety of fields and world regions to discuss the role of education in preparing for, and mitigating the effects of, crisis situations. Specifically, we seek to explore:

  • How have large educational institutions, such as ministries of education, school districts or universities, evolved in their preparation to ensure an effective response to crises?
  • To what extent have leading international development agencies come to prioritize education as an important force in humanitarian responses? How much have agencies considered developing specific teaching methods and curricula for displaced students who may have been out of school for prolonged periods of time? How have various local communities reacted to outside educational efforts in humanitarian relief?
  • How do cross-cultural programs balance the goal of ensuring students a safe, but also rewarding and unique, exchange experience? In what instances have safety measures hindered a program's ability to provide students comprehensive access to local communities?

The interdisciplinary field of international education provides a unique opportunity to address these topics from a variety of academic and practical perspectives. Participants from any discipline are encouraged to apply.  By bringing together scholars, researchers, and practitioners, we hope to come to new understandings of the nature of our work in the field and in the classroom.
