Welcome to the website of the Religion and Education Special Interest Group of the Comparative and International Education Society.

The Religion & Education Special Interest Group (R&E SIG) invites submissions to the CIES 2019 Annual Conference in San Francisco, April 14-18.

The Religion & Education Special Interest Group (R&E SIG) welcomes proposals that provide rigorously completed or in-progress research that is applied, theoretical, or empirical in nature regarding topics related to religious identity or curriculum in secular schools, religious identity or curriculum in religious schools, and school issues related to security and religious extremism. For the CIES 2019 conference, the R&E SIG wishes to develop particular paper panels focusing on religion and the environment, as well as religion / religious institutions and the practice of providing sanctuary to vulnerable populations.
