Abstract: Contemporaneous sciences keep searching for new ways out of the crisis, whereas an outstanding, significant scientific event in the most recent history has not been valorised at its full potential. Improper attention paid to economic education in recent decades has caused an ambiguous understanding of the global economic disequilibrium, now being the key trigger of potential larger-scale war(s), when the global community already avails examples of viable, refined peacebuilding. In the 1950s outstanding economic growth started, owing to an unprecedented synergy of: 1) economics of education emerged; 2) international economic integration (IEI). Despite that, an excessive conflict persists, originating in how people perceive economic disequilibria; it is typically attributed to either globalisation or IEI. The role of the R&D is expected as ever, to supply more creative, genuine inputs for a solution. The article aims to supply better tools of comparative policy making in education, to better perform adjustment of LICs to international economic disequilibrium, by synergising Economics of Education and IEI. The added value of this article is to supply premises for potentially enhanced use of the correlation between the EE and IEI, and more acknowledged and motivational diffusion of scientific evidence.

Keywords: economics of education; international economic integration; IEI; synergetics; low-income countries; LICs; comparative content analysis; networking economics.
