      They are the new "centre". This is valuable since researchers interested in this area often find it difficult to get access to accurate information about the higher education sector in the region. We discuss what is meant by globalisation and examine its impact on higher education generally, and in relation to the Arab Gulf States. Symposium Books.

      Each chapter begins with a general section on education in the Arab world or the Gulf regions, followed by entries on individual countries listed in alphabetical order. Further, many of the attempts to reform the Arab context display impatience and are not implemented properly. They are the new "centre". But nor can it surrender to global commodification. And they are fighting for the first place in terms of quality of learning and education in general among the Arab countries.

      There are also initiatives that instill hope in some countries where reform efforts are showing some results. While most call for more—more government subsidies, more time in school, more students attending college—Caplan provocatively argues for less. AB - This chapter offers a brief overview of the current status of formal governmental support for technology integration in the higher education sectors in different countries in the Arab World, in addition to presenting some major initiatives started and implemented in some of the Arab states. In recognising education policy as a process that is contested and negotiated Yeatman,it becomes important to locate higher education policy making in terms of those participating in conception, operational formulation, implementation, delivery, consumption and evaluation. It provides training for medical professions, engineering, architecture, agriculture, science, computer science and information technology. Above all, the GPI of Yemen is only 0.

However, more than one third of youth remain illiterate or simply unable to write in the Arab least developed countries Egypt, Mauritania, Somalia, and Yemen. The answers discovered through interviews with key decision makers form the basis of the second half of Chapter Four; our study reports on interview data with key policy makers from the region.

We locate the role of local and global discourses and reflect upon whether these have been instrumental in higher educational policy developments. Faked or weak accreditation is a growing problem in Arab countries.

Globalisation and Higher Education in the Arab Gulf States

However, we argue that a second manifestation of this commodification of higher education is even more important. Our commitment, as educationalists, to social justice, equity in provision, and equality of opportunity being embedded in education policy, is undiminished.

Finally, Arab education must address the lack of overall investment in the school environmentone that would allow children to feel safe in school. Gulf countries such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait are also leading in reform efforts, but it is too early for them to show educational gains in higher enrollment, student retention, and teacher qualifications.

The implications of labour markets for education reform policies are discussed in Chapter Four. In recognising education policy as a process that is contested and negotiated Yeatman,it becomes important to locate higher education policy making in terms of those participating in conception, operational formulation, implementation, delivery, consumption and evaluation.

Reports fail to provide in-depth analyses of educational experiences in the schooling of children in K or higher education. In addition, Arab countries would do well not to import curricula from outside but invest in locally rooted and created guidelines.
