The World Education Research Association (WERA) is an association of major national, regional, and international specialty research associations dedicated to advancing education research as a scientific and scholarly field.
Founded in 2009, WERA undertakes initiatives that are global in nature and thus transcend what any one association can accomplish in its own country, region, or area of specialization. WERA conducts outreach to education research associations and groups of scholars world wide, particularly from developing nations and the Global South.
In 2014, WERA introduced individual membership. Individuals may join at www.weraonline.org
