Biographical History

The International Society for Comparative Adult Education is a network of adult educators whose members come from more than 30 countries. The organization has its origins in 1960 in a working group put together by Dr. Alexander N. Charters and Roby Kidd that focused on international and comparative adult education. The organization was known as the Committee for Study and Research in Comparative Adult Education (CSRCA) until 1992, when it adopted its current name.

The network requires no statutes, no accounting or membership fees; although it does publish occasional papers the primary venue for exchange of information is the conferences held annually in various locations.
