Past SEACE Conferences

The Southeast Asian Conference on Education (SEACE) is held in partnership with the IAFOR Research Centre at the Osaka School of International Public Policy (OSIPP) at Osaka University, Japan.

SEACE brings together delegates from many different national, cultural and linguistic backgrounds to present new research and exchange ideas. This exceptional platform welcomes speakers and delegates working in any area of education, from academics and theorists to policymakers and practitioners, in both the private and public sectors, for challenging debate and stimulating discussions around the latest concepts and newest approaches.

Held across four continents, IAFOR’s education conferences attract more than 2,000 delegates a year from more than 100 countries. Education as an (inter)discipline drives the purpose of the forum by bringing alive the notions of the international, the intercultural and the interdisciplinary through scholarly, political, and personal encounters with some of the most important academics and practitioners working in the field, as well as the thought leaders of tomorrow.
