Mission Statement and Rationale


Mission Statement

The mission of the Global and International Education Archive (GIEA) is to collect global and international education materials of all kinds from many sources around the world, to preserve them, and to make them available physically and digitally to everyone.

Rationale

"Global education" or "international education" organizations and materials have existed around the world for nearly half a century, beginning in the 1960s. They focus on educating young people how to understand, live effectively in, and contribute to the modern, complex, interconnected world, not on a comparison of national education systems. Theoretical articles and books, curriculum units and supplements, articles for and against, conference proceedings, speeches, letters, meeting minutes have been drafted, published, shared and/or rejected over the years. Now, in the era of economic globalization, climate change, mass migrations, post-9/11 geopolitics, and other global or international phenomena, new educational writers, writings, and organizations are appearing. The Global and International Education Archive (GIEA) is the worldwide database where researchers, educators and students alike can search for materials, old and new, to support their research, teaching, and learning.
