Perspectives on Asia's Futures II. Report of a Seminar under Major Programme I: Reflection on World Problems and Future-Oriented Studies (2nd, Bangkok, Thailand, April 11-14, 1989).
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Principal Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.
Representatives of the socialist countries of the Asia-Pacific region, namely, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the Lao People's Democratic Republic, the Mongolian People's Republic, and the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam, met to discuss research studies about perspectives on the future in these countries. (Representatives of the People's Republic of China and of the USSR were also present.) The seminar's goals were: (1) to review the interim drafts of the country studies presented, so that the authors of the studies could revise them in the light of discussion; (2) to deliberate on how socialist countries perceive the future; (3) to identify in terms of past development experience and foreseeable trends an agenda for work in UNESCO's fields of competence--education, culture, science and technology, and communication; and (4) to explore possibilities for promoting networking of individuals and institutions engaged in future-oriented studies. The seminar proceedings include an appendix listing those who participated. (DB)
