The IEA was founded in 1950 as a Non Governmental Organization, at the instigation of the Social Sciences Department of UNESCO. This series of Conference Volumes publishes selected papers from past IEA World Congresses and other Roundtable events, representing issues discussed at sessions by both established and younger scholars from around the world.
