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.
