Welcome to the 6th Asian Symposium on Education, Equity and Social Justice (EQUIS 2019) to be held Friday and Saturday, March 22-23, 2019 at the Mitsui Garden Hotel in Hiroshima, Japan. This symposium will be held jointly with the 3rd Asian Symposium on Development (AST4D 2019) and the 3rd International Symposium on Strengthening Peace through Education (ISPED 2019).
Across Asia – and indeed, around the world—the age of globalization is having both positive and negative impacts on human rights and education systems. The biggest impact is on the right to education and basic human rights. We as educators have a moral obligation to ensure that we support the learning of the whole student and that we provide a safe, humane and caring learning environment.
