South Korean Higher Education Internationalization Policies: Perceptions and Experiences
Palmer, John D.; Cho, Young Ha
Asia Pacific Education Review, v13 n3 p387-401 Sep 2012
Our study investigates how Korean universities are designing and implementing internationalization policies to meet the demands of globalization. Relying upon globalization theory we reveal how power is embedded within these internationalization efforts. Indeed, we accept the notion that the United States is the world's superpower and therefore Korea was compelled to "Westernize" in order to become active participants in the highly competitive globalized twenty-first century. Through the perspectives of Koreans and foreigners (e.g., professors, students, government officials, and university administrators), our paper aims to discover and understand Korean values and traditions in comparison and detached from Western theory of globalization and internationalization policies in higher education.
