Session 1. Modern mechanisms for ensuring recognition of education and qualifications in the Asia-Pacific region
5 September 2017
14:00

Against a background of growing economic ties and intensified international humanitarian exchanges within APEC, the issues of ensuring quality of education and mutual recognition of qualifications are becoming ever more challenging. Barriers to recognition are significantly limiting opportunities for educational integration and the development of academic mobility. In this context, harmonization of the approaches and mechanisms for recognizing the education systems of APEC member countries is becoming especially important as a key step towards the creation of a common educational and economic space. This working session will be devoted to the discussion of existing international mechanisms for recognizing education, problem areas, and prospects for the establishment of a common system for mutual recognition within APEC, as well as the exchange of best practices for assessing foreign qualifications, in view of current trends in education.
