The symposium is sponsored by the World Educational Research Association (WERA), an association of national, regional, and international specialty research associations including EERA. WERA wants to advance education research as a scientific and scholarly field and undertakes initiatives that are global in nature and thus transcend what any one association can accomplish in its own country, region, or area of specialization. The theme for the ECER conference among others says: “Cities have always been regarded as leading elements in Europe; they are modern, progressive and networked. They are producers and traders; they are medium for political and cultural development.” This WERA symposium broadens this European perspective on cities to include experiences from Mexico, Chile, Peru, Brasil and South Africa.
