Cross-cultural Theory of Education
Due to globalization, all parts of the world have become closely linked in aspects of culture, society, and politics. This situation calls for a deeper discussion of the relationship between individuals/groups and the state/society. My research focuses on the development of citizens who can contribute to the realization of a more democratic and just society by examining and reconstructing the political concept of “citizenship.” In particular, the focus is on the policies and practices of citizenship education in East Asian societies, in both school education and in a broader sense. The guiding principle of the seminars is to enable students to critically examine and propose solutions to real issues based on theoretical knowledge.
