Each year, WERA holds a Focal Meeting in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of a WERA member association. Focal Meetings consist of a strand of paper and symposia sessions, lectures, and other substantive activities focusing on issues of significance to education research through a world-wide perspective. Research that is comparative, cross-cultural, international, or transnational in conceptualization, scope, or design is emphasized.


The World Education Research Association (WERA) 2017 Focal Meeting was held in Hong Kong, from 30 Nov to 2 Dec. Previous WERA Focal Meetings were held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (November 2010); Kaohsiung, Taiwan (December 2011); Sydney, Australia (December 2012); Guanajuato, Mexico (November 2013); Edinburgh, Scotland (2014); Budapest, Hungary (September 2015), Washington DC, USA (2016) and Hong Kong (2017). In 2018, the first-ever WERA World Congress was held in Cape Town, South Africa.
