With particular reference to the changing expectations of education and the growing concerns of mismatch of skills being found in the labour market, the International Workshop critically examines how the growing influence of globalization has affected educational development and governance, as well as reflecting upon social futures in Europe and East Asia. Specific attention is given to examine skill formation, changing labour needs and how educational institutions have responded to prepare students and graduates to become more adaptive and competitive in the intensified global market place. A special session is organized for postgraduate students to share their research with special focus on reflections on research methodology with leading speakers at the workshop.
