Reviews

"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." - Toyoshi Satow, Chancellor, J.F. Oberlin University, Tokyo, Japan

"The world is developing in a complex and even contradicting process of nationalization, regionalization and globalization. Higher Education Regionalization in Asia Pacific opens the door to observing and critically examining issues related to such complicated phenomena in Asia Pacific." - Xu Xiaozhou, Dean of College of Education, Zhejiang University

"With the growing force of regionalism in global geo-politics, and the increasing importance of regional organization in higher education, not least in Asia, this is an important and timely book. Perceptive country case studies stress the complexity and diversity of the regionalization process in which states simultaneously compete and cooperate, and where myriad forms of regional organization interact in tension with broader global processes." - Andy Green, Professor of Comparative Social Science, Director of ESRC Centre for Learning and Life Chances in Knowledge Economies and Societies (LLAKES), Institute of Education, University of London
