The Policy Department at the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), gathers information in coordination with the Research Team regarding the current state of educational policy in the Muslim world and offers pragmatic policy recommendations to decision makers on ways to implement reforms. The Policy Department identifies gaps in current policies and offers potential solutions for educational practices to be transformative, so that education is a means for advancing holistic human development.
The department will disseminate its findings through several platforms including its Monthly Global Education Policy Monitor and quarterly publications of policy recommendations which will include briefings on educational policy issues along the five concentrations established in AEMS, namely; Pedagogy, Curriculum, Governance and Leadership, Policy and Educational Context, and Assessment and Evaluation. In order to accomplish its mission, the department builds partnerships domestically and abroad while relying on data-driven research prepared by academics in coordination with contacts on the ground in IIIT’s various offices around the globe.
The department also seeks to have discussions with education policy reform experts and stakeholders, including policy advisors, governmental officials, academics, teachers, and parents through its podcast, Third Space Thoughts to Policy, and blog, Thoughts in the Third Space.
