DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Contemporary globalization is being structured by a continuously expanding network of circuits of exchange that increasingly define the nature of the manufacturing, services, and information sectors of society. Higher education is no exception. Through case studies sited in eight Asian countries, Europe, and the United States, this volume explores the range and consequences of increased mobility within Asia-Pacific higher education and the patterns of migration emerging for persons, ideas, institutions, and practices.

Reviews

"This book captures the newest developments, trends, issues, and challenges on student mobility and migration in Asian Pacific higher education. Written by individuals with long involvement in teaching and research in the area, it provides answers to nagging questions and deep and broad insights into the direction of higher education in the Asia Pacific Region. Another classic reference for students and researchers, the book offers up-to-date information about student mobility and migration in the Asia Pacific Region. It is a must-read for administrators, faculty, and researchers." - Serafin L. Ngohayon, President, Ifugao State University, Philippines; President, The Accrediting Agency for Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines

"The editors have assembled a superb and significant compilation of chapters on one of the most critical topics in higher education: mobility and migration. The contributors offer an enlightened and provocative range of views and analyses that is sure to initiate much discussion in the higher education community. Covering both theoretical and case study analysis, the chapters bring into focus how this issue is played out in settings as diverse as Japan, China, Taiwan, Singapore and the United States, Australia, Korea, and regional settings such as Southeast Asia and Europe.  This volume makes a significant contribution to the literature on mobility and migration and is another example of the excellent work being done by the IFE 2020 group at the East West Center." - President Toyoshi Satow, J.F. Oberlin University, Tokyo Japan
