Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the theoretical dynamics and actual approaches toward the emergence of international dimensions in East Asian higher education (In this book, East Asia implies mainly ASEAN+3 (Japan, China, and South Korea). However, this term has also been defined as an open region without clear borders. Therefore, this book does not exclude influences and exchange with Asia-Pacific, Oceanic, South Asian, and/or other countries.). In discussing higher educational reforms in a dynamically changing East Asian region, the authors describe how the steadily rising international profile of Asian universities is accompanied by a rapid expansion toward mass and universal attendance. However, intense competition among countries and regions is now under way in various aspects of politics, business, society, and culture. Under these circumstances, higher education is undergoing diverse reforms in Asian countries.
