East Asia is a most dynamic region and its fast developing higher education and research systems are gathering great momentum. East Asian higher education has common cultural roots in Chinese civilization, and in indigenous traditions, each country has been shaped in different ways by Western intervention, and all are building global strategies. Shared educational agendas combine with long political tensions and rising national identities. Hope and fear touch each other. What are the prospects for regional harmony-in-diversity? How do internationalization and indigenization interplay in higher education in this remarkable region, where so much of the future of humanity will be decided?

Experts from Australia, China mainland, Hong Kong SAR, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, the UK and Vietnam probe these dynamics, with original perspectives, robust evidence and brilliant writing. Changing Higher Education in East Asia deepens our understanding of internationalization and globalization agendas such as world-class universities and international students. It takes readers further, exploring the role of higher education in furthering the global public and common good, world citizenship education, the internationalization of the humanities and social sciences, geopolitics and higher education development, cross-border academic mobility, the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on regional student mobility, and future regionalization in East Asia.

The much-troubled China-US relations are hurting universities and students in both countries and beyond. This volume helps us during this difficult time to pursue engagement that is "mutually humanist, brilliantly positive and intellectually stimulating." * Rui Yang, Professor, Faculty of Education, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong * This book on East Asian higher education could not be more timely. The deep conviction that reciprocal learning between Sinic and Western scholarly traditions could produce "harmony without conformity" staves off emerging Cold War fears. The authors constitute a veritable galaxy of outstanding specialists and emerging potential stars. * Ruth Hayhoe, Professor, Department of Leadership, Higher and Adult Education, O.I.S.E., University of Toronto, Canada * Marginson and Xu have teamed up to assemble an important collection of scholarship that will serve as an influential guide to consider and rethink systems of higher education in East Asia. They inject new voices into the ongoing conversation about the rise of East Asia in both the political economy and higher education. Their contributors deliver by engaging not only the existing literature and relevant historical backdrops but also the global health crisis that threatens to roll back the development of an emerging global society. This book offers a significant contribution to the literature, improving understanding about the different challenges and shared interests across East Asian systems of higher education and clarifying how a set of complicated and evolving interplay of factors either reinforce or challenge Western dominance with implications for advancing a global common good. * Mitchell J. Chang, Professor, Higher Education and Organizational Change, University of California, Los Angeles and Editor-in-Chief, The Journal of Higher Education, USA *
