East-West Center International Forum on Higher Education 2020 The East-West Center is an education and research organization estab-lished by the U.S. Congress in 1960 to strengthen relations and under-standing among the peoples and nations of Asia, the Pacific, and the United States. The Center contributes to a peaceful, prosperous, and just Asia Pacific community by serving as a vigorous hub for cooperative research, education, and dialogue on critical issues of common concern to the Asia Pacific region and the United States. The International Forum on Education (IFE) 2020 is a research and training initiative within the Center that is focused on higher education transformation in the Asia Pacific region. It was initiated to address the need for new paradigms in education that will respond to transformative economic, social, and cultural changes that are driven by increased glob-alization, heightened interdependency, and uneven development among nations. IFE 2020 aims to identify or conduct quality research on the phenomenal growth of higher education in the region, investigate forces and factors driving or resisting change, and apply research results to prac-tical leadership training for social change in the region. The program's major publications have addressed issues of innovation, privatization, and quality in higher education, and one on access and equity is in prepara-tion .
