Call for Article Submissions:
Education Diplomacy Special Issue of
Childhood Education: Innovations


Submissions are due 5 January 2018.


Do you work to advance education in your community, in your nation, or on an international level?

Do you have experience with cross-sector collaborations and interactions between education stakeholders, including governments, NGOs, and businesses?

If so, you have experiences, insights, and ideas to share about using the skills of Education Diplomacy to accomplish these advancements and collaborate with various stakeholders. ACEI invites you to share your work in our May 2018 issue of Childhood Education: Innovations, which will focus exclusively on innovative practices and models of diplomatic approaches used to bridge divides and solve challenges to advance education.

Inspire other educators and advocates working around the world by sharing your stories about the innovative ways you have been working to improve education through cooperative and collaborative approaches such as partnerships, consensus building, negotiations, mediation, or creation of coalitions and alliances to solve today’s complex education challenges. These skills—the skills of Education Diplomacy—are essential to accomplish community, national, and international advancements in education.

The 2030 United Nations Agenda for Sustainable Development views education and learning as central to all human progress. Education Diplomacy brings people together to achieve the Agenda’s Sustainable Development Goals. It uses the skills of diplomacy to bridge divides and increase cooperation between those who design or deliver education in order to address education challenges and embrace a transformative vision for human progress.

Education is seldom delivered effectively without the formation of collaborative relationships. These relationships can positively impact classroom teaching, the management of schools and school systems, teacher preparation, and education policymaking at community, national, and international levels. The skills of diplomatic interaction applied in the education sector—Education Diplomacy-—form the foundation of strong cooperative exchanges of information and ideas that enrich and improve education.

Showcase how you work to advance education. Inspire countless educators, NGOs, and policymakers to use diplomatic approaches to ensure education access, quality, and equity for every child in every nation!
