Shared histories project received endorsement from South-East Asian Ministries

Dr. Gwang-Jo Kim, Director of UNESCO Bangkok, presented an innovative shared histories project to the 36th session of the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) High Officials Meeting.

The project concept reflects the conclusions and recommendations of lead historians from most South-East Asian countries: it proposed the development of thematic teaching modules representing histories of South-East Asia Nations from various angles to promote a better mutual understanding within the region.

The project was endorsed by High Officials, opening the door for UNESCO to move forward with its implementation.
