Keynote Speech

The International Conference on Education Research (ICER) 2018
Education for Democracy and Social Justice:
Global, National, and Local Contexts


October 17-19, 2018
Seoul National University, Hoam Faculty House

Call for Papers
 Today, significance of education is increasing in depth and scope. Future-oriented discourses on education reform and innovation are drawing global attention. Education, along with many other spheres of life, is perceived as resource to enhance human well-being. In 2015, however, we recognized the crises facing the global community by adopting the Sustainable Development Goals and began to share the dream of life sustainable throughout generations. This was the affirmation of sustainability that reaches beyond the issues of resources depletion and environmental pollution and toward the restoration of humanity and the construction of democratic and just social relations. To this end, the goal of education for development in the 21st century should be to foster democratic citizenship for individuals and societies to live in harmony. Its ultimate aim should be to increase the capability of all individuals to live life to the fullest. In other words, education that calls for constant transformation toward democracy and social justice must be the critical element in the development of individuals as well as the local, national, and global community.
