ACEID2020 Overview


Join us in Tokyo for ACEID2020

March 23-26, 2020 | Toshi Center Hotel, Tokyo, Japan

Welcome to The 6th Asian Conference on Education & International Development (ACEID2020). This international conference encourages academics and scholars to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum stimulating respectful dialogue. The ACEID2019 conference saw more than 200 delegates, and plenary addresses by the former UN Special Rapporteur, and the Head of the Japanese Institute for Human Rights, Yozo Yokota, as well as by representatives from JICA, and senior administrators from universities throughout the region. ACEID2020 will again afford an exceptional opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, networking, and facilitating partnerships across national and disciplinary borders.

In bringing together education and international development, past conferences have seen presentations on internationalising Japanese universities, education issues faced by refugees, cultural diversity in classrooms, and other interdisciplinary topics related to education and international development. In order to encourage the broadest range of submissions from diverse disciplines, the Organising Committee has decided to forego assigning a specific theme for ACEID2020, instead opting to consider anything that fits within the field of education and international development. There will be several streams, including Diversity in Global Contexts, Education
 & Socio-Economic Development, Education & Development: Local & Global, Public & Private Partnerships
 in Education, Economics & Management of Education
, Literacy: Poverty & Sustainability, and Innovation & Value.

Held in partnership with the IAFOR Research Centre at the Osaka School of International Public Policy (OSIPP) at Osaka University, ACEID2020 promises to be as exciting and informative as ever, continuing IAFOR’s efforts to engage in interdisciplinary initiatives aimed at having an important impact on domestic and international public policy conversations. It is through conferences like these that we expand our network and partners, and we have no doubt that ACEID2020 will offer a remarkable opportunity for the sharing of research and best practice, and for the meeting of people and ideas.

We look forward to seeing you in Tokyo in the spring.

      The IAFOR Research Centre (IRC) is housed within Osaka University’s School of International Public Policy (OSIPP), and in June 2018 the IRC began an ambitious new “Innovation and Value Initiative”. Officially launched at the United Nations in a special UN-IAFOR Collaborative Session, the initiative seeks to bring together the best in interdisciplinary research around the concept of value, on how value can be recognised, and measured, and how this can help us address issues and solve problems, from the local to the global.
