CESHK Annual Conference 2016/二〇一六年會徵稿啓事

ECE web_000003641057Large-20150623-150308157_1“Learning to Live Together & Comparative Education”

at The Hong Kong Institute of Education (HKIEd).

The Annual Conference of the Comparative Education Society of Hong Kong (CESHK) is the largest gathering of education research associations in Hong Kong and one of the biggest in Asia. The theme for the 2016 CESHK Conference is “Learning to live together & comparative education,” and it highlights the crucial role of peace, harmony and tolerance for the well-being of humanity. The theme is aligned with the 20th anniversary of UNESCO’s “Learning: The Treasure Within,” usually referred to as the Delors Report, which is followed by “Rethinking Education” report (2015). While learning to live together is one the four pillars mentioned in the Delors Report, it is arguably a less explored and discussed in the field of education.
