The intention is to look for papers which emphasise the ability to reflect upon field-based research in education development, with a strong emphasis on the Third World. Its style and methodology is to have Plenary sessions in which two speakers address each main topic, each one of which is followed by parallel Seminars to explore four or more aspects of the topic. Each of these Seminar groups is initiated by a lead paper issued at the start of the Conference and introduced for about fifteen minutes by the author, then followed by about an hour of participative discussion.
