The Philanthropy and Education SIG promotes academic discourse on the topic of philanthropy and education with an emphasis on exploring the socially responsive and effective giving of individuals, corporations, and foundations within changing contexts. Vast amounts of wealth are currently being generated and concentrated in the hands of a few actors, resulting in a great deal of tension around the north-south flows of philanthropy and the ability of philanthropic giving to serve the needs of the local community sustainably. At the same time, new mechanisms and actors are entering and changing the philanthropic landscape, including the emergence of south-south philanthropy. In line with the CIES 2021 theme, the PiE SIG invites individual paper and group panels submissions on research that examines the growing role of philanthropy and how philanthropy might be impacted within the context of new social movements and the continued expansion of non-state actors in education. We welcome a broad range of research methodologies and policy analyses that cut across cultural, disciplinary, methodological, and geographical boundaries, including but not limited to: the giving culture, institutional structures, governance, networks, strategic priorities, and the impact on local communities.
