Mariusz Galczynski is the managing director of the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES), an academic association dedicated to increasing understanding of educational issues, trends and policies through comparative, intercultural and international perspectives. Its more than 2,500 individual members – researchers, analysts, practitioners and students – represent over 1,000 universities, research institutes, government departments, non-governmental organizations, and multilateral agencies across the globe. Truly international, CIES includes education experts from more than 100 countries. CIES members explore educational issues related to schools, students, teachers, and administrators – from early childhood and primary school to secondary and higher education, as well as non-formal education and lifelong learning. Some compare achievement inequalities across socioeconomic status, gender, ethnicity and language. Others examine the relationship between education and cultural processes, democratization, globalization, economic development, and political conflict.
