The Nanjing 2011 Conference is a joint conference of three organisations:

The Association for Moral Education (AME) The Association for Moral Education (AME)

The Association for Moral Education (AME) provides an interdisciplinary forum for professionals interested in the moral dimensions of educational theory and practice. The Association is dedicated to fostering communication, cooperation, training, curriculum development, and research that link moral theory with educational practice. It supports self-reflective educational practices that value the worth and dignity of each individual as a moral agent in a pluralistic society. The AME holds an annual conference, usually in North America or Europe, and has a biannual e-newsletter, AME Forum. AME's membership is international and the membership fee includes a subscription to the Journal of Moral Education. For more information see:

The Asia-Pacific Network for Moral Education (APNME) The Asia-Pacific Network for Moral Education (APNME)

The Asia-Pacific Network for Moral Education (APNME) brings together from within the Asia-Pacific region a focused group of educationists of various disciplines to facilitate in-depth discussions, the sharing of perspectives and the exchange of ideas with regard to teaching and learning in the areas of moral education, values education and citizenship education. It does this both formally, during its annual conference, and informally, through ongoing exchanges throughout the year. From small, informal beginnings in 2006, APNME has grown into a formal network of educators who are either located in the Asia Pacific region, or who have a special interest in the region. It also actively seeks to involve and support young researchers and post-graduate students of moral education and moral development. For more information see:

Journal of Moral Education (JME) Journal of Moral Education (JME)

The Journal of Moral Education (a Charitable Company Limited by Guarantee) provides a unique interdisciplinary forum for consideration of all aspects of moral education and development across the lifespan. It contains philosophical analyses, reports of empirical research and evaluation of educational strategies which address a range of value issues and the process of valuing, in theory and practice, and also at the social and individual level. The journal regularly includes country based state-of-the-art papers on moral education and publishes special issues on particular topics. As the only international journal focusing on moral education and development, the JME has an international editorial board, is peer-refereed, and published by Taylor & Francis. In 2011 it celebrates its 40th anniversary with AME and APNME in Nanjing, China and will publish a Special Issue, Moral Learning: integrating the personal, professional and political.
