About Strategic Education Governance Image

The Strategic Education Governance (SEG) project supports countries in developing flexible and adaptive governance processes to be able to deal with the increasing complexity of their education systems. It builds on CERI’s previous work on Governing Complex Education Systems (GCES).

Strands of work

 Policy Toolkit

The SEG Project is developing a policy toolkit based on aspirational indicators to help identify governance gaps and support countries in strategic education governance.


Learning Seminars

SEG Learning Seminars apply OECD's insights on strategic education governance to specific policy challenges. Education systems can draw lessons for governance practice by contrasting and comparing their approaches and the challenges they face.
