"Ka-Ho Mok has done it again. He has assembled a superb cast of contributors to bring to light, and debate, the emerging contours, new possibilities, and contradictions in the changing governance landscape of higher education in the Asia region."---Susan L. Robertson, Professor: Center for Globalization. Societies, and Education. University of Bristol, UK
This book offers critical reflections on the governance change taking place in the Asian university systems and examines how far the restructuring of higher education governance through incorporation, privatization, and corporatization has really transformed the values and practices of those who work in the higher education sector. In order to enhance the global competitiveness of their higher education systems, many governments in Asia have started comprehensive reforms and adopted new governance measures to enhance their universities. Contributors in this volume address how the quest for "world-class" university status (as a global movement) has affected the way their universities are governed. This dynamic collection adds to the debate as to whether and how these reforms have actually transformed the heart of the public sector.
