Panel discussion on 'Are Multinational and International Organisations and Bilateral Aid Agencies Succeeding in Addressing the Global Educational Needs of the Twenty-First Century?'
26 March 2014, 14.30 - 16.30
Auditorium, Faculty of Education, University of Malaya
It is clear from highly credible and respected research that the twenty-first century will present
new, massive and potentially devastating challenges to human survival and sustainable development. The agencies concerned are directly or indirectly the international response to the post second word war phase of new international co-operation. To what extent have they succeeded, especially with regard
to education in all its forms and operations? Are their structures, modes of financing and operation fit for purpose for the coming decades? Do they need radically new educational dimensions, objectives and modes of operation to be able to meet and overcome the problems of the twenty-first century?
