Comparing European and East Asian Experiences in Higher Education Regionalism
This paper traces the history of regional cooperation in higher education in Europe and Asia and compares key elements of the harmonization process in the two regions. The author concludes that a convergence of European and East Asian initiatives can be observed, which increases the potential for lasting cooperation and to explore global synergies. While Europe's efforts to regionalize higher education systems are more advanced, with most public and private actors having reached a consensus, the dynamic East Asian model is quite interesting due to the variety of ways through which systemic convergence can be achieved.
