About the book – With the advent of a large middle class and new openness driven by economic imperatives, Asia appears to be shifting onto the world’s center stage. This book, edited by two leading experts in higher education, critically examines the local and global trends driving higher education policies in Asia and their impact on the local and regional knowledge economies. Featuring an impressive group of leading scholars, practitioners, and education policy experts these chapters look at how governments, universities, the private sector, and international organizations are responding to recent trends and meeting the diverse challenges and opportunities across the region.
