The seventh edition of the Congress of the Americas on International Education (CAEI), organized by the Inter-American Organization for Higher Education (IOHE), is hosted by Chile and will be held in virtual format from October 19-22, 2021. CAEI Chile-2021 is organized in collaboration with the higher education institutions and associations that make up the National Committee and the invaluable support of the Chilean Ministry of Education. It aims to promote academic collaboration, establish institutional ties, consolidate strategic alliances and exchange success stories related to the internationalization of higher education in order to promote development at the local, regional and international levels.
Under the theme Charting the Future: Strengthening the Global Knowledge Community, CAEI Chile-2021 invites people working in teaching or research, in civil society organizations or agencies, specialists and interested individuals to submit proposals for posters or parallel sessions that, in line with the central theme of the Congress, motivate exchanges on the different ways in which the internationalization of higher education strengthens the global knowledge community and accelerates the pace and scope of academic, scientific and social contributions, providing shared solutions to global challenges.
IESALC Director Francesc Pedró will participate in the plenary panel along with Kim Osborne, Secretary for Integral Development of the Organization of American States (OAS) and Ms. Alicia Bárcena, Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC). This panel, made up of representatives of multilateral organizations and international agencies responsible for promoting human development in the Americas, seeks to share their perspectives on the global context, present priorities, programs and institutional initiatives around the 2030 Agenda and share their views on the role that higher education institutions should play as drivers of change and development in the region.
