The Asian Center for Comparative Governance (ACCG) and St. Robert’s Global Education will hold its 2nd International Conference on Contemporary Education (ICCE) on July 27-28, 2019 at the Amari Watergate Hotel, Phetchaburi Road, Bangkok, Thailand. The theme for this year’s conference is
“BEYOND BORDERS: CHANGING EDUCATION AND GOVERNANCE PARADIGM”
This year’s theme aspires to shed light on breaking global divide through bringing participants’ focus into the concept of paradigm shifts in both education and governance. The paradigm shifts in education led to a technological world bringing the classroom to homes; bridging gaps and distances among schools and learners; embracing diversities and transforming learning into an autonomous and more collaboration-oriented experience. The conference also seeks to look into the Changing Governance Paradigm. A change of the paradigm in governance aids transparency, genuine democracy, and uplifts Gender and Development; therefore, ensure equity, equality, safety, and protection of the people, economic independence, freedom of expression, and excellent sense of moral obligation.
