The core emphasis of the conference is on understanding Asian perspectives on leadership and learning. Leadership and learning, like various other concepts, are often viewed/treated as global. However, the majority of these theories which claim to have global application originates in different parts of the Western world. This raises an important concern: Is it wise to assume that all these theories are universal in nature and could be equally applied to all contexts? There is, thus, a need to examine/challenge generalizations related to learning and leadership across cultures and geographical boundaries, between East and West, but of course also between Eastern contexts.
There is a need to understand theories through the wide range of diverse contextual and cultural perspectives available in the East. It is in this connection that the conference is strategically an important initiative, as it aims at contributing to the knowledge on leadership and learning in Asia.
