Internationalisation Policies, Initiatives

This issue discusses internationalisation in higher education in the region and beyond. We dive deep into the varying responses of universities to the growing trend, with some nations pushing back against it as a “neo-liberal agenda of the West”, while others see it as a way to share indigenous knowledge and culture beyond borders.

In this issue:

  • The Internationalisation of Higher Education in Southeast Asia: Institutional Policies and Initiatives
  • Internationalisation: Southeast Asia and Beyond
  • Developments in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam
