Centre for Educational Research and Innovation - CERI

Conference on Trust and Education, 7 December 2015, The Hague University for Applied Sciences, The Hague, The Netherlands



Governments are under increasing pressure to implement more efficient and effective policies and accountability mechanisms while at the same time sustain the trust of their citizens. Trust is essential for successful governance, yet we know relatively little about how trust is developed and sustained over time, or restored if broken.

Co-hosted by the Dutch Ministry of Education, The Hague University of Applied Sciences and the OECD’s Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI), this one-day seminar will bring together state of the art research with country experiences and examples of building, maintaining, and restoring trust in education. Interactive workshops will feature presentations from a number of countries, each featuring a specific example of a trust breakdown and the efforts taken to restore it. Plenary and workshop discussions will explore the interactions between accountability, professionalism, responsibility and trust in education.

  • To convene international delegates who will explore in-depth the issues related to trust in education, including measurement, definitions and knowledge base;
  • To host a productive conversation between academia, government and professionals to help come up with collaborative solutions to challenges (such as building, restoring and sustaining trust).
