The Global Partnership for Education Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX) takes a collaborative, action-oriented approach to building and mobilizing robust evidence to help strengthen education systems in GPE partner countries. Research is valuable for both policymakers and academic audiences at the community, national, regional, and global levels. Bringing Southern-led evidence to key global discussions is a core part of KIX' success. That’s why KIX is excited to be participating in the upcoming Comparative and International Education Society’s conference, CIES 2023. The hybrid conference will take place both virtually and in-person in Washington, D.C. from February 14-22. KIX will be represented by ten applied research projects and three regional hubs presenting on a variety of topics:
