Submit a think-piece on the governance imperatives of a new social contract for education


Call for Think-Pieces on Governance and a New Social Contract for Education

UNESCO is inviting researchers, educators, and practitioners to contribute 1000-2000 word think-pieces that explore, from different perspectives, the governance imperatives of a new social contract for education. Submissions will be peer-reviewed, and a selection will be published in a volume to appear in English and French, in advance of the UN’s Summit of the Future.

This volume will explore the question of how forging a new social contract for education will require governance models, approaches, and foundations that align with its key principles. Characterized by cooperation and solidarity, concerned with widespread participation and the establishment of trust, and committed to justice in all of its aspects, education will require new forms of leadership, prioritization, participation, and policy reform across its systems, processes, and objectives. All submissions must be received by 31 January 2023.

Read more details about the publication and submission information in the call for proposals.
