CERC’s 2024 Annual General Meeting

CERC held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 10, 2024 in a hybrid mode. The main purpose of the AGM was to review CERC’s performance since the last AGM in 2023. Nutsa Kobakhidze, the Director of CERC, welcomed all members and thanked the Management Committee for their support throughout the year.

During the meeting, Nutsa Kobakhidze presented the Annual Report and highlighted CERC’s notable achievements, which included a highly successful 5-year review, a new contract with Routledge, UNESCO Chair activities, and more. Throughout the review period, the Centre remained active, hosting seminars and events. CERC members published over 100 peer-reviewed articles and participated in international, local, and regional conferences. Looking ahead, CERC will co-host a conference with CESHK on November 22-24, 2024, where it will also celebrate its 30th birthday.

The minutes of the previous AGM were approved during the meeting, and an 11-minute teaser of a CERC-supported documentary film from Georgia on shadow education was screened.

The meeting adjourned at 4.05 pm, followed by a seminar featuring Maren Elfert, Senior Lecturer in International Education at King’s College London. Professor Elfert’s talk was entitled “Global Governance and the Promissory Visions of Education.”
