A Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins with a Single Step
Asian Studies and Vietnamese Confucianism
This special issue of Asian Studies is dedicated to Confucianism in Vietnam. The idea of this topic has a rather long history. It can be traced back to the second biennial conference of the World Consortium for Research on Confucian Cultures (WCRCC), which took place in Vietnam in 2016 and was hosted by the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Vietnam National University––Ho Chi Minh City under the theme “Confucianism as a Philosophy of Education for the Contemporary World”.
