Abstract:

This project is one of the regional studies of Regionalization and Internationalization of Higher Education project working with Jane Knight and Ruth Hayhoe at the University of Toronto. In June 2010, Japan formulated a new economic policy titled An Asian Economic Strategy to Develop Japan as a Hub for Growth. It aims to double the flow of the world's people, goods and money into the country as the center (hub) of Asia and promote bold reforms to the regulations that are currently a hindrance. In term of higher education, Japan will increase international student intake from 120,000 at present to 300,000 by 2025 and improve domestic systems to make it easier for international talent study and work, in order to make Japanese universities hubs for global human resources development in East Asia. The goal of this research is threefold; (1) to review the progress of policy initiatives, (2) examine and compare national and institutional (university) initiatives and identify gaps between them, and (3) present issues and make suggestions for further initiatives. The conceptual framework is national and institutional-level-rationals of internationalization model advocated by Knight. More specifically, I will analyze these two actors' initiatives through six elements; human resource development, strategic alliances, income generation and commercial trade, research and knowledge production, nation/institution building and social/cultural development and mutual understanding. Methodology is mainly qualitative research but I also use national quantitative data analysis. I have been interviewing with officers of Ministry of Education of Japan and faculty and staffs at major universities about their initiatives for this policy. This is ongoing project until April, 2011so I will show final findings at the conference. However, at this point, I found some gaps between two actors' initiatives. Therefore, my findings will be mainly about gap analysis and suggestion for promoting policy effectiveness.
