Welcome Message

Message from the CESA Conference Chair

On behalf of the Faculty of Education, Hiroshima University, and of the Comparative Education Society of Asia, I would like to extend my warmest welcome and sincere good wishes of the people of Japan to all distinguished participants, especially all CESA members to this celebratory international conference on “Resilience and Rebuilding of Education: Aftermath of Social Crisis”!

It is an honour to host the thirteenth biennial conference of the Comparative Education Society of Asia in conjunction with the celebrations of our foundation anniversary. We are also delighted to welcome colleagues and friends from all over the world again to Japan after the first conference of CESA held 27 years ago.

The 2020s will be a genuinely auspicious decades for our Education Community. Over the past few decades, we have faced many crises, such as war, terrorism, disaster and pandemics. We tend to focus on the brutal aspects of these phenomena, but in this year’s CESA symposia, we will focus on recovery from polycrisis and the role of researchers and international organizations in the recovery process. learning about the power of people to value education and take it back to their countries.

This year’s gathering will be an essential step towards the right view and direction of comparative education and its ultimate goals. It will be a great opportunity for us not only to learn from each other in the spirit of the field of Comparative Education but also to foster relationships through face-to-face meetings for international cooperation in education.

Professor of Faculty of Education, Hiroshima University
