  • Keynote speaker: Gita Steiner-Khamsi is Professor of Comparative and International Education, Department Chair, International and Transcultural Studies at Columbia University in the United States. For the first 10 years of her professional life, Professor Steiner-Khamsi worked on multicultural and antiracist education policies at the Ministry of Education in the Canton of Zurich in Switzerland. By virtue of comparing policies in different countries of immigration (UK, Canada, US), she became involved in comparative education methods and theories. Since then, her experience has evolved in three directions: comparative policy studies in education; theories and debates in international and comparative education; and comparative methodology.
