The 2021 Virtual Symposium on Advancing Education in Muslim Societies (AEMS): Policy, Pedagogy, and Development is a collaboration of the Indiana University School of Education and the International Institute of Islamic Thought. This year we will focus on examining the far-reaching scope of education and its implications for civil society as well as education systems and practices in Muslim countries and the Muslim Diaspora. The Symposium is designed to foster and disseminate groundbreaking research on the role of education in social change in Muslim societies. The terms “Muslim” and “education” are defined broadly to be inclusive of cutting-edge research from across the world and disciplines. By “Muslim,” we mean any self-identifying Muslim individuals, institutions, communities, and societies and their roles in experiencing and shaping education. “Education” includes the pedagogies, practices, and policies, as well as the conditions and status of human development and civic engagement, as related to Muslim societies and communities.

The symposium is FREE of cost.
