Conferences

The International Consortium for Higher Education, Civic Responsibility and Democracy hosts invitational conferences in collaboration with the Council of Europe through its Committee on Education. These conferences are designed to engage senior leaders in higher education, particularly university presidents, vice chancellors, and rectors as well as the leadership of major higher education organizations and public authorities, in exploration of the role of higher education in advancing democratic culture, human rights, and diversity. These conferences are also laying the foundation for a broader global network that will share examples of good practice, identify joint research projects, and develop opportunities for faculty and student exchanges and dialogue.
