Access, Equity, and Capacity in Asia-Pacific Higher Education

Neubauer, D. E. & Tanaka, Y. (Eds.). Access, Equity, and Capacity in Asia-Pacific Higher Education. Palgrave, Hampshire, 2011. ISBN: 978-0-230-10110-4. Pages: 246.

This new Palgrave publication – part of its International and Development Education series – examines the issues of access, equity and capacity in higher education throughout the Asia-Pacific region. Moreover, it offers insight into the variations of higher education stratification seen in countries throughout the region, and considers such issues as 

  • approaches to defining and measuring capacity,
  • variations in equity in higher education,
  • the emergence of ‘structured opportunity’ higher education markets and
  • the effects of cross-border provision on higher education access, equity and capacity in the region.

In addition, the book offers country-specific analysis by various scholars of such phenomena in China, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam.
