The Revue internationale d’éducation de Sèvres, published by the Centre international d’études pédagogiques (CIEP), is a French-language journal which since 1994 has provided a comparative approach to the major education issues across the world. With more than a thousand authors published from 110 countries on all continents, the journal has over the years become an encyclopedia of education around the world, as well as a bridge between continents and cultures.

The journal publishes three issues a year on a variety of topical issues for an audience of education policymakers and practitioners, as well as academics and researchers from various disciplines with an interest in education. The journal has an international scientific board and an editorial committee, which convene at regular intervals. Issues are organised around a central topic that is currently being discussed on the international stage. Each issue also provides information and documentary resources in the field of educational policies and teaching practices.

The journal periodically organises international conferences to reflect upon ongoing developments and to try to identify the major global trends discernible in the field of education. These conferences, which bring together authors, readers, researchers, education policymakers and practitioners, are used to produce a special issue of the journal.

Figuras mundiales de la educación

The 79th issue of the Revue internationale d’éducation de Sèvres focuses on the great figures who, over the centuries, have changed education and had an influence extending beyond the time in which they lived. The selected authors have striven to present the figures or movements in question to the best of their ability. They situate them with precision in the context in which they emerged and clearly show the dreamlike or utopian dimension of what they conveyed. In the introduction to this dossier, the coordinator of this issue articulates the paths that draw these figures together, potentially invoking links woven over the centuries with other figures or movements that are not covered in the contributions. The introduction thus responds to the objective that informed the development of this issue: to attempt to foreground the chain of events, ideas and ruptures that hint at the future path of education.
