  Institute of East Asian Education

About IOEAE 

Message From The Representative Director


Economic and social exchange between regions in East Asia is getting frequent and widespread. However, political and military confrontation remains tense. The role of education is important  in establishing an equal and reciprocal relationship under such circumstances.

If we take a review on the development of education in East Asia, we will find that modernization always came after the establishment of modern school system. Centralization of educational administration, group lesson and passive learning may be considered as a common feature of education in East Asia. However, institutionalization on decentralization and expeditionary learning proceeds since 2000. It is evident that we can find similar educational reforms in Japan and other countries in that period.

There is common historical and cultural basis, educational problems and necessity of educational reform in East Asia. We expect to establish a space for people in East Asia to   propose  their educational problems, to promote exchange on educational research and practice,  to  make academic  contribution through hosting international symposium and publishing journals. Therefore, we established the Institute of East Asian Education. We look forward to supports from those who concern educational problems, researches, and exchanges in East Asia.

Message From The  President

The Institute of East Asian Education was established in July 2015 in order to promote the development of educational research in East Asia.

In the current era, globalization and structural changes affect every aspect of our life including politics, economy, society, culture, education, environment, health care, science and technology, accelerating the human exchanges and the development of culture. Experts have indicated a prospect that the 21st century will be “the Asian Century” in which its share of global gross domestic product is expected to exceed 50 percent by 2050. East Asia has developed unique cultures and shared values since ancient times such as Confucian, Buddhist and Taoist thoughts. On the other hand, East Asian countries have encountered difficult issues and conflicts over politics and history in recent years. In this situation, we believe that the role of education will become increasingly important for the future of the region.

The Institute of East Asian Education aims to build a research network as an educational institution attempting to succeed East Asian culture and traditions, and create innovative values for our future cooperation. Our challenges include the following three points. First, we encourage interdisciplinary and cross-cutting educational researches that are not only from the educational field but also from various fields and approaches. Second, we conduct our research by involving both Northeast and Southeast Asian countries such as Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Third, we are involved in the exchanges and development of educational theory, practice and policy through advancing cooperation among researchers, teachers, practitioners and policy makers in East Asia.

The Institute of East Asian Education published The Journal of East Asian Educational Research, organized international conferences and symposiums, conducted school visits and participated in lesson studies by overseas researchers, and engaged in educational consultations for inter-universities’ collaboration. The Journal of East Asian Educational Research has been continuously published as an international journal that promotes advanced and leading-edge researches by organizing the editorial board which presumably accepts four languages (Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean) for the first time in the journal of the educational institute. At the international conferences and research meetings in which educational researchers from various countries have participated, we have succeeded in collaborating with educational researchers and practitioners by continuing discussion and overcoming language barriers. Through these activities, we intend to promote mutual understanding and creation of shared values in East Asia under the influence of globalization, and contribute to the development and innovation of East Asian education that would connect past, present and future.

We will devote our utmost effort to constructing highly specialized research network base that can respond to the demands of academics and society, and aim to promote the development of educational research and exchange in East Asia. We kindly ask for your continued support as we move forward in our endeavors.
