Welcome to the Gulf Comparative Education Society

The GCES is an academic society that was formed in 2008 to enable comparative and professional discourse on educational issues in the Arabian/Persian Gulf region. The Society aims to promote and develop collaborative and individual research activities that explore educational issues by hosting a series of annual conferences and workshops surrounding context-specific educational issues in the Gulf region, connecting academics, policymakers, educators and others through symposia and an online forum, and providing members with access to conference resources and publications. As the GCES grows, it will continue to host regional meetings, conferences and workshops, as well as launch a newsletter as a way to share research and news among members.


In 2016, the GCES hosted its Seventh Annual Symposium in Kuwait. Join us and be part of the first society involved in comparative education in the Gulf region.
