Special Seminar

Educational system in Vietnam

Education has historically been one of the most important policy issues in Vietnam. However, education system in Vietnam has been complex and influenced by the changes of institutions governing welfare policies. While recent economic growth in Vietnam during the last two decades can be attributed to its rich human capital base, there are growing concerns over existing education systems in the era of globalization.

The seminar will invite Dr. Jonathan London (Leiden University, the Netherlands) and Dr. Ian Coxhead (University of Wisconsin, USA) as presenters to discuss various issues related to education in Vietnam, from socio-political as well as economic perspectives. Dr. London will review how past and present political regimes have dealt with education in their nation building and welfare provisions policies. Dr Coxhead will discuss challenges that Vietnam faces to broaden and deepen the reach of its educational system as the country transitions to globalization and middle-income status.
