Book Review: Christopher Hill and Rozilini M. Fernandez-Chung. HIGHER EDUCATION IN THE ASIAN CENTURY: THE EUROPEAN LEGACY AND THE FUTURE OF TRANSNATIONAL EDUCATION IN THE ASEAN REGION, ROUTLEDGE, 2017. 172 PP., ISBN: 978-1-315-73637-2 (EBK)
As goes the education in a country, particularly higher education, so too goes the success of many factors that affect life there: the economy, level of technology, societal issues, individual and collective prosperity and a country’s move toward internationalization. Higher education in the Asian century: The European legacy and the future of transnational education in the ASEAN region explores the history of the member nations of ASEAN. The legacy of educational progress is derived from their colonial experience and foreign ties and the effects that these relationships may have had on each country. Specifically, the book examines how a tool of higher education, Transnational Education (TNE), the movement of programs of study, students and teachers across international borders, has been and is being used in each country involved in attempts to attain governmental, societal, and higher education-related goals.
