WORKSHOP: Thinking about the Education of Transnational Children (TCKs)

2011-1-29 (Sat) 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Currently a large number of transnational children* reside in Japan, children who have traveled and/or lived overseas and whose parents come from different countries. Such children often face problems with regard to identity, education, and language development. Likewise, society faces significant challenges with regard to personnel, budget, and ways to assist such children as they mature.

In this workshop, researchers and persons with experience in working with transnational children will meet in order to exchange information as well as practical proposals for effectively dealing with and reducing the challenges faced both by society and such transnational children.


* Note: "transnational children" are most commonly referred to as "third-culture kids" (TCKs) in English.

Date: 2011-1-29 (Sat) 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
