Call for Papers: Philanthropy in Education: Setting the Stage for Analyzing Global Trends, Regional Differences and Diverse Perspectives

The Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of a new symposium series, Philanthropy in Education: Global Trends, Regional Differences and Diverse Perspectives, co-sponsored by NORRAG and the Open Society Foundations. This series seeks to facilitate greater understanding and collaboration between philanthropic organizations, national policymakers, representatives of international organizations and academics working in the field of education.
 
The series consists of an inaugural symposium, followed by six regional symposiums in Francophone Africa, India, People's Republic of China, North America, Anglophone Africa and Brazil and a closing symposium to be held in Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates in May 2019.
 
The inaugural symposium, Philanthropy in Education: Setting the Stage for Analyzing Global Trends, Regional Differences and Diverse Perspectives, will take place at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva from November 22-24, 2017. We invite researchers, practitioners and/or policymakers to submit papers which explore philanthropic activity in the education sector. The deadline for abstract submissions is May 24, 2017.
 
Perspectives from any education/philanthropy related discipline are encouraged, as are diverse methodologies. For further information about the Call for Papers, click here.
 
Papers presented at the symposia will be published online and widely disseminated by the initiators of the series. In addition, an edited volume on global trends in philanthropy in education will be released.
 
We look forward to receiving your submissions!
