Americas Dialogue on Education Policy (ADEP)

The Americas Dialogue on Education Policy (ADEP) is a program created in 2018 by the Institute of Latin American Studies (ILAS) at Columbia University, and organized in partnership with the Latinx and Latin American Faculty Working Group at Teachers College, Columbia University. ADEP's main objective is to foster communication between countries of the Americas on Latin American education policy.

The first edition of ADEP took place in 2019. To explore ADEP and its outcome, please click on the years below:
