1For the 20th anniversary of the Revue internationale d’éducation de Sèvres, the Centre international d’études pédagogiques (CIEP) will be hosting on 12, 13 and 14 June 2014 an international conference entitled “Education in Asia in 2014: What Global Issues?”. Under the patronage of the French Ministry of Education, Higher Education and Research, the conference is organized by the CIEP in partnership with the National College for Education Management, Higher Education and Research (ESENESR) and the Ministry of Education (European and International Relations and Cooperation Commission). It is supported by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and French cultural services in China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Hong Kong and Taipei.

2A comparatist and pluridisciplinary approach. The conference aims to raise awareness and promote a better understanding of the educational realities of this diverse and important region. The conference will also provide an opportunity to consider how Asian countries are responding to their own educational challenges, and the relevance of these responses outside Asia.
The questions asked of Asian education systems will be those that comparative specialists ask the world over, but it is also important to consider the links between education, traditions and civilisations, both within Asian countries and in comparison with others. The focus of the conference will be on school education.

3Bringing together 40 speakers from around twenty countries, the conference will be organized around the following three core strands:

  • Asia’s education systems: How is school represented?

  • Asia’s education systems: Organizations, strategies and results?

  • Education in Asia and across the world: Towards Asian models? Towards competition or cooperation?

4Which “Asias” are we referring to? While education in Asia is based specifically around two key educational experiences, that of Chinese-influenced Asia and that of the Indian traditions, other educational traditions and contexts that are less specific to Asia, such as the Muslim tradition, will also be taken into account, as well as the historical, ideological and political developments particular to each country. The following contexts will be considered: China, South Korea, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Vietnam.

5Publications and online content. The plenary sessions held on 12 and 14 June 2014 are available at Canal C2. 24 case studies from the workshops are published online in French and English [http://ries.revues.org]. An extensive annotated bibliography, produced for the conference by the CIEP’s Resource and Documentary Centre (CRID), and country profiles giving a broad outline of Asian education systems, is available online. Issue 68 of the Revue internationale d’éducation de Sèvres will further explore the issues discussed during the conference. It will be published in April 2015.
