Education South Asia initiative, based at the Contemporary South Asian Studies Programme of Oxford School of Global and Area Studies organised an online conference titled 'Education in Crisis: Rethinking Education in Post-Pandemic South Asia Conference' (23-24 July 2021). This two-day online conference explored a simple, and yet crucial question of our times - in what ways do we need to re-think education in South Asia? The conference hosted more than 100 speakers in both synchronous and asynchronous formats. The initiative aimed to space for dialogue - between academics, policy-makers and practitioners, and across South Asian countries. At least 300 participants attended the conference live on Zoom and many more attended through the YouTube channel. We hope that this will be a first step towards building a community of like-minded professionals in the field of South Asian education.
