The Forum for Asian Studies at Stockholm University co-organizes the 3rd International Educational for Rural Transformation (ERT) Symposium, that will take place 15 – 17 October 2012 at the Maharaja Sayajirao University in Vadodara, Gujarat, India. The theme for the 2012 symposium will be ”Education for Rural Transformation (ERT) – Good Practices from National and International Perspectives”. The present and ongoing three-year comparative research study on Education for Rural Transformation (ERT) is coordinated by Professor Vinayagum Chinapah at the Institute of International Education (IIE), Department of Education, Stockholm University, in collaboration with Dr. Zhao Shangwu, Professor Zhou Nanzhao, and Dr. Pushpanadham Karanam at the Dept. of Educational Administration, MS University, Baroda. The aim is to critically examine the concept, policy and practice of education for rural transformation in China and India from a comparative perspective using both qualitative and quantitative research methods. Thus the 3rd Syposium is a follow-up to the two symposia held in Stockholm, Sweden in 2010 and Chengdu, China in 2011.
