Event ended




April 9–12, 2019 



We are pleased to announce two International Symposiums on Education to be held during the 20th HSE April International Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development in Moscow, Russia.

The Symposium "Well-being, Education and Socio-Economic Development" is devoted to different aspects and concepts of well-being (including health, psychological well-being, subjective happiness and life satisfaction of students), as well as to how they relate to education.

The speakers and participants will discuss, in particular, the following topics:

  • Which factors influence the well-being of students and other actors in the learning process?
  • Does one's educational level have an impact on well-being? What is the correlation between academic achievement and the well-being of students and families? 
  • How is increasing well-being associated with inequality in education?
  • Which changes are necessary in schools in order to enhance the well-being of children, teachers and parents? 
  • Which data and methods can be used to study well-being? 
  • How is well-being linked to the development of digital technologies, including digital technologies in education?

The second Symposium, “Economics, Sociology and Politics of Education,” will combine various disciplinary perspectives on theoretical and empirical issues in education (primarily, relating to economics, sociology and politics of education). The focus of this Symposium is on transitioning to the investment model in education, developing human capital, advancing public-private partnership and personalized financing models, etc.
