〈アジア研究セミナー2019〉第１回「The right to learn: Problems of education in the present Myanmar/Burma」が2019年12月21日（土）に開催されます。
The lecture will review the state of education in Myanmar/ Burma over the past decade and a half as the country has been undergoing a profound, albeit still incomplete transformation. It will start by introducing education s – government, private, monastic and ethnic schools. Drawing on a decade and a half of fieldwork across the country, the lecture will discuss both the problems in this sector as well as the reforms that promise solutions. The education reforms are particularly important, as over the past seven decades, education has served as a ‘litmus test’ for judging the level of openness of any Myanmar government. The talk therefore situates the state of Myanmar’s education sector today within the context of the wider reforms and the peace process that started in 2012.
