How do Higher Education Policies and Higher Education Institution Practices across Asia and Europe contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals?
This question, among others, will be addressed during the launch of the 9th ASEF Regional Conference on Higher Education (ARC9) study on ‘Higher Education Mapping: Working Towards the SDGs’. This event provides the time and the platform for academics, students, policymakers and higher education experts to learn about the findings of this mapping exercise, and engage in a discussion with each other.

In 2022, during the first year of this biennial project, two studies were conducted to map higher education policies and practices across Asia and Europe:
The ARC9 Study on Asia-Europe Higher Education Mapping: Working Towards the SDGs, consists of two parts:
Part 1: Mapping Policymakers Perspectives
This study maps higher education policies advancing sustainable development across Asia and Europe. Covering 31 national contexts in Asia and Europe, the study combines data from a survey, focus group discussions, and a review of secondary sources to glean patterns in how governments are encouraging HEIs to contribute to the SDGs, provide concrete examples of enabling measures, and identify opportunities that may be leveraged to strengthen the HE policy-practice interface towards the SDGs.
Part 2: Mapping Higher Education Institutional Perspectives
This study showcases developments regarding sustainable development in the higher education sector from the perspective of higher education institutions. The study was conducted in partnership with the International Association of Universities (IAU). Data from the third iteration of IAU Global Survey on Higher Education and Research for Sustainable Development (HESD) specific for the purview of ASEF was analysed to investigate the scope, depth and breadth of engagement of higher education institutions with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This study maps 240 institutional responses from 42 countries in Asia and Europe.
