The International Advisory Board was set up, as is set forth in its Mission Statement, with the conviction that “we live in times that are not only changing but are very volatile and uncertain in terms of the economic model, social structure, cultural patterns and, in general, all of human experience. The education system is an integral part of this global soul-searching”.
