At the 2nd ASEM Education Senior Officials’ Meeting (SOM2) ASEF’s Education Department Director, Ms Leonie NAGARAJAN, presented on the department’s ongoing work towards Inclusion & Equity across various programmes. With a particular focus on the 8th ASEF Regional Conference on Higher Education (ARC8) which ASEF organised on 10 September 2021 in the lead up of the 8th ASEM Education Ministers’ Meeting. ARC8 tackled a key priority area within the ASEM Education Process: Inclusion & Equity in Higher Education. The conference welcomed over 1,500 university managers, academics, students, policymakers and representatives of higher education networks from the 51 ASEM Partner Countries to leverage on the current COVID-19 disruption and put the values of inclusion and equity in the center of their recovery roadmap. As part of the ARC8 Conference, ASEF launched two major publications which will serve as future references and resources for ASEM education policy makers and stakeholders: the ARC8 Outlook Report 2030: Inclusive and Diverse Higher Education in Asia and Europeand the ASEM Equity Policy on Higher Education Study 2021’.

Additionally, to further contribute to the deliberations of the 8th ASEM Education Ministers’ Meeting (ASEMME8), ASEF asked young people across Asia and Europe to express their views on the following two questions:  

“What do you see as the main opportunity for Inclusion in Higher Education in the next decade?”  

“What do you see as the main risk for Inclusion in Higher Education in the next decade?” 

These two videos were played during the ASEMME8 to channel the youth’s voices to ASEM Education Policymakers and Education Leaders. The videos also reflect on discussions and outcomes of the 8th ASEF Regional Conference on Higher Education (ARC8) and the 4th ASEF Young Leaders Summit (ASEFYLS4) on “Sustainable Development in a post-COVID-19 world”.
