Alliance for International Education

Upcoming conference

Welcome to AIE

On behalf of the Board of Trustees I extend to all a warm welcome to the Alliance for International Education and to our website.

A reading of the brief history of the AIE will show that we are well into the second decade of our existence. Since its inception, the number and variety of activities undertaken under the auspices of the Alliance has continued to engage an increasing number of participants. In doing so, a fundamental aim of the AIE is fulfilled as it brings together people, organisations and institutions in order to exchange knowledge and experience in the practice of promoting international education and intercultural understanding.

The eight biennial conferences held to date, the impressive growth of the China chapter through its regional meetings, the development of new Chapters in Australia and UK, the partnerships that have been formed and the links made with other organisations, have all contributed significantly to the reputation that the Alliance has gained thus far for its work in the field of international education. As we look towards the next decade of our existence, we do so with confidence that the continuation of our current successes together with our plans for future activities will further enhance our effectiveness in fulfilling our aims.

Following the highly successful Alliance for International Education conference held in Bangkok in February 2016, our ninth conference will be held in the colourful and vibrant city of Amsterdam between 6 and 8 October 2017. Please look for more details on this website, including how you can contribute to the exciting programme that is currently being planned.
