  • Abstract
    This symposium applies research from educational development studies and political science towards the realisation of new forms of global governance, aiming to achieve the global objectives set out in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Special focus will be placed on two of the seventeen SDGs, i.e. SDG 4: Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning, and SDG 16: Promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies.The symposium will begin with a keynote address, laying out the theme of global governance in relation to SDGs and explaining the relevance of topics that will be introduced in the research panels. The first panel will involve research presentations on SDG 4 from the perspective of educational development studies. The research presentations in this panel will focus on Target 7 of SDG 4: Ensure all learners acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including among others through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship, and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development. The second panel will focus on SDG 16, applying political science from both theoretical and empirical approaches to discuss the creation of democratic electoral systems in developing countries. This panel will particularly center on Target 7 of SDG 16: Ensure responsive, inclusive, participatory and representative decision-making at all levels.
