Milligan, Jeffrey Ayala – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2008
The devolution of control over education policy in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao of the southern Philippines has led, in recent years, to efforts to Islamise education in the region, a trend reflective of similar efforts in other Southeast Asian Muslim countries but often seen as worrisome by secular observers concerned about the…

In this article, the author provides a brief response to Claire Kramsch's paper.

Pennycook, Alastair – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2005

Postiglione, Gerard A. – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2005
How much is hegemony and how much is self-determination in the higher education systems in Southeast Asia? This paper argues that while the question of centre and periphery is still relevant to the analysis of international university systems, the analytical frameworks from which it has arisen may lose viability in the long term. Southeast Asian…
