WERA Constitution

The WERA Constitution sets forth WERA’s mission and goals.

 Preamble

The World Education Research Association (WERA) is an association of national, regional, and international specialty research associations aimed at advancing education research as a scientific and scholarly field. The associations that constitute WERA are resolved to working together through international and reciprocal collaborations to address such issues as building capacity and interest in education research, advancing education research policies and practices, and promoting the use and application of education research around the world. Fundamental to WERA is a commitment as a community of non-profit, education research associations to share skills, strengths, and sensitivities and build upon the diversity of traditions, languages, and critiques to transcend what any one association can accomplish in its own country, region, or area of specialization. WERA operates with this criterion in setting priorities and taking on projects, programs, or other activities. WERA is situated to promote and stimulate such a world-wide perspective and is committed to doing so to promote excellence and inclusiveness in education research and thereby serve the public good around the world.
