Abstract

Following volume 23.2, the second volume in our two-part special issue series (23.3) includes six papers. One focuses on a policy framework facilitating international mobility of students and academics in higher education in the Asia-Pacific region, and the other five papers focus on dynamic policies and practices of internationalization of higher education in countries including China, Cambodia, Malaysia and Vietnam. In the first article of this issue by Wesley and Wang (2021), they describe the development and prospects of the Tokyo Convention (UNESCO, 2011). The Tokyo Convention is a significant policy framework for the internationalization in Asia-Pacific to facilitate regional collaboration, authoritative information sharing and recognition of qualifications across diverse modes of learning. To monitor and assess the role and implementation of the Tokyo Convention throughout the region, a standardized survey implementation was employed in their analysis, and it became the first systematic review of its kind. Including their professional insights, Teter and Wang identify the need for a multi-stakeholder approach based on collaborative governance to effectively monitor implementation and implications of the Tokyo Convention for diverse higher education stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific region.
