Abstract

This Special Issue was conceived and developed following a series of international conferences held in Asia, with a particular focus on critically reflecting upon higher education development in the region from broader social and political economy perspectives. Some of the papers in this Special Issue were selected from presentations in the East Asia Social Policy (EASP) Research Network Conference successfully held in Taiwan in 2018, while others were chosen from international events held at Lingnan University in Hong Kong presenting critical reviews and reflections on internationalization, marketization and graduate employment of higher education in Asia. This introductory article puts the discussions of the selected papers in this issue in context, with critical reflections on the key issues being examined in these papers. The Special Issue is published when the world is still confronting the unprecedented global health crisis resulted from the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. This article discusses the higher education development trends in Asia through the massification, diversification and internationalisation processes in transforming the higher education system and examines how these development trends are affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

本期特刊是在亞洲舉行的一些國際會議之後構思和發展的,特別側重於從更廣泛的社會和政治經濟學角度批判性地反思亞洲地區的高等教育發展。本期特刊的部分論文選自2018年在台灣成功舉辦的東亞社會政策研究網絡(EASP)會議,另一些則選自在香港嶺南大學舉行的國際學術交流,批判性評論和反思了關於亞洲高等教育的國際化,市場化和畢業生就業的問題。本文對本期所選論文進行介紹,並將這些論文研究的關鍵問題放在新冠疫情大爆發的背景下進行了批判性討論。更具體地說,本文通過研究大眾化,多元化和國際化對高等教育的影響,探討了亞洲高等教育的發展趨勢。本文還研究了COVID-19危機如何影響這些發展趨勢。
