The WTO and the University: Globalization, GATS, and American Higher Education (RoutledgeFalmer Dissertation Series in Higher Education)

PThis book fills a niche in the literature on trade and higher education services by providing context and analysis of the trade issue in the American higher education context. By and large, the debate about the merits of including higher education services within free trade policies has occurred outside of the United States, even though the U.S. Office of the Trade Representative has specifically included higher education services in its March 2003 negotiating offer to the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS). This book emerged from research and conversations on the potential implications of free trade on American higher education, implications which have yet to lead to any real conversation or debate within the broad higher education community in the United States.

The scope of the book is specifically US centered, though this is background information on higher education in a global policy context. It is distinctive in that it is a unique and original examination of the free trade in higher education services, from the perspectives of the US-based actors and within the context of globalization and its implications for higher education. Its selling points would be the timeliness of the issue, the uniqueness of the topic and research, and the contribution it can make to spurring some greater dialogue and debate within the American higher education community about the pros and cons of free trade in higher education services. Обо всём этом и не только в книге The WTO and the University: Globalization, GATS, and American Higher Education (RoutledgeFalmer Dissertation Series in Higher Education)
