Submission Deadline for Article Abstracts: May 9, 2014
The Institute of International Education (IIE) invites you to propose a chapter for its upcoming publication, Asia: The Next Higher Education Superpower? The publication is part of a policy book series, Global Education Research Reports, which is published jointly by IIE and the American Institute For Foreign Study (AIFS) Foundation.
The upcoming volume will critically examine the local and global trends driving higher education policy in Asia and its impact on the local and regional knowledge economies. Many experts view internationalization of higher education in Asia as a means to capitalize on rapid globalization and remain competitive in the global marketplace. In addition, each country faces its own set of challenges, whether it is Japan’s aging population, demand for technological development in China, or capacity limitations in developing countries in Southeast Asia. This book will look at the role of higher education in meeting these demands and how innovations in policy are changing the higher education landscape regionally and globally. To be considered for a chapter in the book, we invite you to submit a 250-word abstract by May 9, 2014.
