Higher Education and the New International Order. A Collection of Papers.
Sanyal, Bikas C., Ed.
Addressing the issues surrounding the relationship between higher education and the development of a new international economic order, the 11 articles collected here provide an introductory analysis of the current relationship between higher education and the world economy, analyze the differing needs of developing and developed countries, and provide two case studies of economic factors in educational policy. Articles by Malcolm Adiseshiah, Theodore Schultz, Jan Tinbergen, Bogdan Suchodolski, and Rafael Salas identify the current shortcomings of higher education and show its role in development, its agenda for future planning, its impact on culture, and its responsibility for mass education. In urging developing countries to find their own paths toward a new international order, Edmundo Fuenzalida, Samir Amin, and Pablo Latapi argue that the aims of developed countries weigh too heavily in world higher education and that an educational structure that advances the self-reliance of developing countries is possible. Jean-Louis Reiffers focuses on the conflict of values inherent in French higher education's fostering of both competition and cooperation in international productivity. Mohamed Moursi Ahmed and Mohamed Hamdy El-Nashar concentrate on the role of higher education in building a new international order in Arab states. An appendix contains the United Nations declaration (May 1, 1974) that outlined the goals of the establishment of a new international economic order. (JW)
