Governing Complex Education Systems: Third Thematic Conference

This conference is the third in a series of three for the OECD project entitled "Governing Complex Education Systems".
The conference "Effective Multilevel Governance in Education" is organised jointly by UNESCO's Education Sector and the OECD's Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI).

The conference will look at key questions in multilevel governance such as:
- what can central governments still do in highly decentralised systems, and which policy instruments still work in the complex reality of education governance, i.e. one that is fluid, de-central and fragmented?
- do local governments have the capacity to govern in your country context, and are they held sufficiently accountable by local stakeholders?
- what issues arise from multilevel governance where power is spread over different levels, e.g. co-ordination, conflict, trust?
