【About INEI】
The genesis for INEI (formerly International Alliance of Leading Education Institutes) is rooted in the shared optimism that the pooling of common experiences and achievements amongst a community of educators can bring about advances in education internationally.

Each of the member institutions has its own strengths and achievements and receives international recognition for its teaching programs and research. Through their investment in ongoing research, they are making – and will continue to make- significant contributions to education in their own countries and internationally. Through the Network, ten institutions bring to the table their individual accomplishments and strengths, and together they can be a catalyst for change in the area of education. Thus the Network endeavors to:

offer something unique by speaking with a single collective voice and with some degree of authority on educational matters, especially teacher education – thus significantly raising the profile of education in the arenas of public consciousness and government policy bring synergy to the group in order to collaborate on issues of major concern in education be a think tank to debate and generate ideas, anticipate trends and future scenarios, and communicate through statements and declarations on critical issues in education that will have an impact on policy decisions in their respective countries as well as in the rest of the world develop statements and declarations of interest to international funding institutions and organizations and policy makers.

EVRI will take the initiative in collaborating with INEI in order to realize its vision of “promoting educational reconstruction”, with the participation of the Graduate School of Education, Hiroshima University.

As a representative institution in Japan, Hiroshima University will consider what can be transmitted to the world, and will implement the “Peace Education and Lesson Study for Teacher Educator (PELSTE)” with the theme of “peace” and “teacher education”.

On this page, we will disseminate details about the activities of the PELSTE program involving EVRI and its members.



1. InformationPELSTE




In the first session, the purpose of this program, teacher educators from universities around the world gathered in Hiroshima to discuss “how to teach the meaning of“ peace ”and how to lessons study” in teacher education ”.So, the program was to be held in January 8 to 15, 2020.

For PELSTE 2020 participants, a public application was made to INEI member universities on September 8, 2019, and the results were published on October 17, 2019. In this year, a total of 5 participants from different universities were selected to be composed of researchers with diverse careers, from young to expert.

We aim to expand joint research based on connections with participants.
