ABOUT CIES

The Comparative and International Education Society (CIES), Inc., was founded in 1956 to foster
cross-cultural understanding, scholarship, academic achievement, and societal development
through the international study of educational ideas, systems, and practices. The Society's members
include more than 2,000 academics, practitioners, and students from around the world.

Their professional work is built on cross-disciplinary interests and expertise as historians,
sociologists, economists, psychologists, anthropologists, and educators. The Society also includes
approximately 1,000 institutional members, primarily academic libraries and international
organizations. The official website is sponsored by the Comparative and International Education
Society.

Over the last four decades, the activities of the Society's members have strengthened the theoretical
basis of comparative studies and increasingly applied those understandings to policy and
implementation issues in developing countries and cross-cultural settings. The membership has
increased global understanding and public awareness of education issues, and has informed both
domestic and international education policy debate. The Society works in collaboration with other
international and comparative education organizations to advance the field and its objectives.

Dear conference participants:

On behalf of the conference planning committee, I would like to welcome you to the
                                                                                                    Iveta Silova
northeast regional conference of the Comparative and International Education Society
                                                                                                Conference Chair and
(CIES)! It has been five years since the last northeast regional CIES conference took place
                                                                                                     Organizer
in Washington, DC, and we are honored to take the torch from our colleagues at the
Washington Consortium for Comparative and International Education and Training—
American University, George Washington University, and University of Maryland.

We are very excited to host this year's regional conference at the College of Education,
Lehigh University. As one of the youngest programs in the field of comparative and
international education, it is a great opportunity for us to serve as a site for the academic
debate on one of the most heated topics in the field—the role of international aid in
education development. Can aid solve longstanding educational development challenges?
Should we begin to think beyond educational aid by critically analyzing the larger picture
of development and the underlying causes of global inequality? How can international
educational aid be re-conceptualized with a more informed sense of social justice and
participatory dialogue? We hope that this conference will stimulate meaningful dialogue
on these complex issues and help us envision new ways of thinking about international aid
in education development.

We are grateful for such an enthusiastic response from our colleagues in the northeast
region and far beyond! From New York City to Ontario to Tbilisi—participants have
come from near and far to contribute to our conference. Our goal is to provide a
supportive setting to share our ongoing research, whether it is at the beginning stages or
already completed, and to empower each other to take our research beyond the walls of
higher education institutions as we consider how it impacts international education
development in practice. We are committed to making this conference as inclusive as
possible, with sessions of interest not only to people directly involved in international
development in education, but also to students, scholars, education professionals, and the
general public with an interest in this important area of education.

We hope you enjoy the conference and we look forward to welcoming you at Lehigh
University in October!

Dear participants of the Northeast Regional CIES conference:

The Comparative and International Education Society extends a cordial welcome to the            Gita Steiner-Khamsi
participants of the Northeast regional conference. The regional conferences offer an              President, CIES
outstanding opportunity both for seasoned as well as junior researchers and practitioners
to present and discuss their work. Our work in comparative and international education
requires cooperation and border crossing across cultural and financial world-systems and,
as a result, professional growth in our field requires—perhaps more than in any other field
of education—constant dialogue and critical self-reflection. The 2005 Paris Declaration on
Aid Effectiveness has helped to create a greater sensibility for principles of ownership,
accountability, transparency, and a host of other principles that now, at least rhetorically,
dominate the applied work in educational development. The question for researchers now
is, who are the drivers of “aid effectiveness,” has aid changed in practice, and if it has,
how, and to whose benefit? These are but a few of the questions that are likely to surface
during this conference.

Besides complimenting our host on choosing a heatedly debated conference theme, I
would like to thank the colleagues, students, and administrators at Lehigh University for
organizing the conference. The Comparative and International Education program at
Lehigh University is one of the youngest graduate programs with great promise and even
greater visibility. The faculty in the Lehigh program is composed of internationally
renowned, productive scholars. They offer intellectually rigorous courses, both in the
United States and in other parts of the world. The team at Lehigh University was an active
and reliable partner for the CIES 2009 conference and the International Teaching
Resource Center is technologically forward-looking and unique in its kind. In other
words, this year was a very active year of service for the team at Lehigh University.

I look forward to lively discussions and encounters with colleagues and students in our
comparative and international community!

Dear Participants,

On behalf of Lehigh University’s faculty, staff, students, and administration I would like to
welcome the participants of the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES)
Northeast Regional Conference to our campus and to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, for what               Mohamed S. El-Aasser
promises to be a very productive and invigorating conference.                                        Vice President for
                                                                                                    International Affairs
Education remains one of the most important grand challenges facing our world today, both
within the US, as well as in developing countries. The issues are complex, dealing with such
topics as affordability and accessibility, well-trained teachers for special needs students, and
assessment of educational outcomes and learning experiences of students. These issues
transcend national boundaries and in some cases may have common features such as, how
to educate students from poor neighborhoods, regardless of geographic location; what type
of infrastructure is needed for education; and what makes a qualified teacher?

Teaching a child with few resources requires not only a caring individual but also a
professional who has access to the most current knowledge, practices, and research.
Through the professional activities and the sustained efforts of the members of CIES, the
dialogues and discussions that will take place here at Lehigh will help advance scholarship.
Over the two day conference, important issues relating to development and education will
be fully explored in hopes of identifying new solutions to complex global issues facing
education today. Bringing the best and brightest professionals together will help provide
policy makers and governments with the needed facts and information to make informed
decisions.

Lehigh University is very proud of the contribution of the faculty, staff, and students in the
College of Education and its newest program, Comparative and International Education.
This group, with its colleagues both in the US and abroad, is ensuring the advancement of
fundamental knowledge as it relates to the grand challenges of education.

The College of Education’s efforts, through such programs as CIE, are also an integral
contributor to Lehigh’s International Portfolio, namely, "to globalize Lehigh’s mission of
advancing learning through the integration of teaching, research, and service to others
through a systematic and sustained engagement between the Lehigh Community and the
World-at-large.”

Best wishes for rigorous discussions and building networks which will ultimately serve and
benefit current and future generations of students.

Abstract:
There has been renewed debate over the utility of international aid and its contribution to
educational improvement in developing countries. This is, of course, part of a larger ongoing
debate about the impact of aid on development. This paper reviews some aspects of these debates.
In particular, it is important to acknowledge that this is not a new debate but has been ongoing for
decades. The Right and the Left have called, at times, for a cessation of aid. Today they are joined
by a Muddled Middle. These views are challenged by a call for “smarter” aid, which over the
years has argued for the need for aid to be “evidence-based,” i.e., specifically tied to successful
programs and policies. All the above views share a belief that international aid has often been
unsuccessful. To the contrary, I also explore the critical view that aid has been very successful—
not in reducing poverty or stimulating growth but in legitimating a very unequal world system that
maintains and reproduces inequality. Lastly, I consider what new approaches might be taken.

   Annual Review of Comparative and International Education:
    Post-Socialist Transformations in Education Worldwide
      Volume 12 in the International Perspectives on Education and Society Series
                    Published by Elsevier Science Ltd., Oxford, UK
                                         Edited by
                        Alexander W. Wiseman (Lehigh University)
                              Iveta Silova (Lehigh University)
The 20th anniversary of the collapse of the Soviet Union is a time to reflect and call attention to
the educational transformations in post-socialist nations of Southeast/Central Europe and the
former Soviet Union and in educational systems around the world. While the educational
landscape changed most obviously in the former socialist countries and aligned nations, the
impact of the collapse of the Soviet Union was felt in nations worldwide. This volume will
provide a comparative account of the meanings and processes of post-socialist
transformations in education by exploring recent theories, concepts, and debates on post-
socialism and globalization in national, regional, and international contexts. Of particular
interest is a critical examination of post-socialist transformations and the evolution of
educational change globally since 1991. Do the post-socialist transformations reflect a
convergence or divergence relative to global educational norms? How have post-socialist
educational processes transformed the global order outside of former socialist regions? How
should we revise our understanding of the impact of post-socialism and globalization on
education in a post-cold war era? Understanding these complex developments since 1991 is
critical to the study of education around the world in the new millennium.
We invite comparative and international scholars to propose chapters that address any
number of a wide variety of topics in post-socialist transformations in education. Topics should
address this volume’s theme and could include, but are not limited to, the theories and policy
implications of post-socialist education transformations, the role of international agencies and
new donors in educational transformation processes, acculturation issues as they relate to
educational globalization, the hidden curriculum and its change (or lack there of) since the
collapse of the USSR, language marginalization or expansion through education, new
philosophies of education, the changing status of the teaching profession, and the role
education plays in citizenship creation in post-socialist nations. The intent is to have a
combination of state-of-the-field reviews, theory-driven syntheses of current scholarship,
reports of new empirical research, and critical discussions of major topics around the volume's
theme.
Chapter proposals should be 4-5 page summaries of the proposed chapter and deal explicitly
with as many of the following as are applicable, preferably in this order: (1) objectives or
purposes; (2) perspectives or theoretical framework; (3) methods, techniques, or modes of
inquiry; (4) data sources or evidence (if applicable); (5) results, conclusions, or point of view;
and (6) the significance or relevance of this chapter to the volume’s overall theme. Authors of
successful proposals will be asked to provide a complete chapter manuscript for external
review by 1 March 2010. Final accepted chapter manuscripts are due 1 August 2010. All
proposals/manuscripts are peer-reviewed.
        Please submit chapter proposals written in English by 1 November 2009 to
                                 cieannualreview@gmail.com.
