The Centre for Development Studies and Education is an inter- and multi-disciplinary social science research centre set up by the Institutes of Social Sciences (ISS) under Hanoi National University, Vietnam.
The Centre was established on January 10th 2012 by the Decision No. 111QĐ-ĐHSPHN-TCCB of the President of Hanoi National University of Education (HNUE). It aims to promote a national reputation based on the quality of its work and its commitment to applying academic information in order to address national challenges especially in capacity building, education reform and poverty elimination – to inform as well as to influence.
The slogan of the CDSE is “academic information- practical knowledge”. ‘Academic information” refers to the information and evidence collected and generated from research and development studies. The vision is to transform such information into ‘’practical knowledge’’ through workshops, seminars, training courses, demonstrations, mentoring, functional consultations and development policy recommendations. Through the key activities, CDSE will contribute to the process of knowledge production and human development in Vietnam.
