The International Seminar
From Peril to Promise: how higher education can deliver

Tuesday 19 March - Saturday 23 March 2002


About the Seminar

Following the report's success, many are now asking "what next?". The British Council International Seminar, From Peril to Promise: how higher education can deliver, will help answer that question.

The seminar will bring together a high-level group of policy makers, educationalists, donors and higher education experts. It will focus on educational reform projects in developing (and transitional) countries, allowing intensive discussion of what works, what doesn't work, and why.

Most work will be done in small discussion groups, with the emphasis on the skills and knowledge of participants, rather than external speakers. The seminar will provide an ideal forum for sharing ideas and best practice, and for networking between a multinational audience.

Dissemination will be through a conference report, which will act as a follow up volume to "Peril and Promise", and via the British Council and Task Force websites.

The seminar is run by the British Council in partnership with the World Bank, the UK Department for International Development and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, with the Times Higher Education Supplement acting as media partner.
