While this is a call for interest only,  the details of a formal application are on the InSEA website. Some of the relevant clauses are reproduced below:

  1.  A World, National or Regional Congress of INSEA can only be advertised as such and held if it has had the prior approval of the World Council.
  2. Although a Congress is always planned and hosted by a particular country or national organization, it is important to recognise that first and foremost it is an INSEA Congress and the International Society must be pre-eminent in all matters of planning and protocol.
  3.  INSEA Congresses are open to InSEA members. Every encouragement should be given to participants who are otherwise eligible, to become members of the Society
  4.  Members of other UNESCO affiliated organizations should be informed about and encouraged to attend INSEA Congresses. The Director-General of UNESCO should be invited to send an official delegate. The INSEA Secretary can provide information about these matters.
  5.  A proposal to hold an INSEA Congress can only be made by an Affiliated Organization of INSEA. (See Rules and Regulations on Affiliated Organizations.) If an affiliation does not exist, then affiliation must take place before submitting a congress proposal to the World Council.


Candidates will be informed about the decision on step 2  by  30 May   2019.
