Call for Papers |  The 6th Asian Conference on Education & International Development (ACEID2020)

The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) invites you to The 6th Asian Conference on Education & International Development (ACEID2020):

  • Final Abstract Submission Deadline: January 10, 2020
  • Conference dates: March 23-26, 2020

 The ACEID2019 conference saw more than 200 delegates, and plenary addresses by the former UN Special Rapporteur for Myanmar, and Head of the Japanese Institute for Human Rights, Yozo Yokota, by representatives from JICA, and by senior administrators from universities throughout the region. ACEID2020, too, will bring together leading scholars and practitioners for sharing ideas, networking, and facilitating partnerships across national and disciplinary borders.

In bringing together education and international development, past conferences have seen presentations on internationalizing 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 will consider various topics within the field of education and international development.

Submission streams include:

  • Diversity in Global Contexts
  • Education & Socio-Economic Development
  • Education & Development: Local & Global, Public & Private Partnerships
 in Education
  • Economics & Management of Education
  • Literacy: Poverty & Sustainability
  • Innovation & Value

ACEID2020 is held in partnership with the IAFOR Research Centre at the Osaka School of International Public Policy (OSIPP) at Osaka University.

Take this opportunity to visit Tokyo, meet scholars from around the world, discuss your work, learn from others, and build networks of partners with whom you might collaborate in the future. Additionally, the Japanese cherry blossoms (sakura) should be in bloom around the time of the conference, so we look forward to seeing you in Japan!
