A major ICMI program is the series of ICMI Studies. This set of activities was launched in the mid-80s and has acquired a growing importance and influence on the field. It contributes to a better understanding and resolution of the challenges that face multidisciplinary and culturally diverse research and development in mathematics education.
Each Study focuses on a topic or issue of prominent current interest in mathematics education. Built around an international conference, it is directed towards the preparation of a published volume intended to promote and assist discussion and action at the international, regional or institutional level.
The main emphasis of a given Study may be on analytical or action-oriented aspects, but some analytical component will always be present.
