India arriving : how this economic powerhouse is redefining global business by Rafiq Dossani( )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In India Arriving, Rafiq Dossani gives us a unique and unflinching look at the people, history, and culture of an often romanticized but often misunderstood country. Chronicling this enigmatic country from its birth as an independent nation in 1947 to its emergence as the next global superpower, India Arriving shows us the real India, with all of its flaws and all of its beauty."--Jacket
University expansion in a changing global economy : triumph of the BRICs? by Martin Carnoy( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of higher education in the world's four largest developing economies--Brazil, Russia, India, and China. Already important players globally, by mid-century, they are likely to be economic powerhouses. But whether they reach that level of development will depend in part on how successfully they create quality higher education that puts their labor forces at the cutting edge of the information society. Using an empirical, comparative approach, this book develops a broad picture of the higher education system in each country in the context of both global and local forces. The authors offer insights into how differing socioeconomic and historic patterns of change and political contexts influence developments in higher education. In asking why each state takes the approach that it does, this work situates a discussion of university expansion and quality in the context of governments' educational policies and reflects on the larger struggles over social goals and the distribution of national resources
Building the links between funding and quality in higher education : India's challenge by Lindsay Daugherty( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

India has joined a worldwide trend in which nations are seeking to improve the quality of their higher education systems by giving greater autonomy and accountability to lower levels of government (e.g., states) and to the higher education institutions themselves. India⁰́₉s 12th Five-Year Plan, released in December 2012, suggests a range of reforms to higher education to change the role of the national government from ⁰́command and control⁰́₊ to ⁰́steer and evaluate.⁰́₊ One approach that has proven effective in other countries is explicitly linking funding to well-defined quality measures and quality assurance processes. While India's 12th Five-Year Plan discusses the importance of quality improvement and funding, it does not discuss how quality and funding can be linked to support quality improvement under a ⁰́₋steer and evaluate⁰́₊ approach to governance. In this report, the authors review India⁰́₉s and other countries⁰́₉ efforts to reform their higher education systems and suggest seven policy actions that the Indian national government and other stakeholders can take to improve higher education by linking funding to quality

2 editions published between 1905 and 2009 in Chinese and English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once the jewel in the crown of the formidable British Empire, India has been surrounded by myth for years. After gaining independence in 1948, this often misunderstood country found itself faced with a new sense of freedom - and along with it, enormous burdens and challenges. While exotic, mysterious, and seductive, it has also become an economic force to be reckoned with. With the fourth largest economy in the world, the largest youth population on Earth, and a thriving middle class, India is the second-most-preferred destination for foreign investment. But very few Americans truly understand

Maritime issues in the East and South China Seas : summary of a conference held January 12-13, 2016( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In January 2016, the RAND Corporation’s Center for Asia Pacific Policy organized a conference on maritime disputes in the East and South China Seas. Participants discussed disputes stemming from rising nationalism and competition for natural resources, resulting in challenges to established power structures. As China’s regional presence has increased, smaller nations have built coalitions with powerful states (such as the United States) and among themselves. In addition, competition for fish and hydrocarbon resources has made territorial resolution difficult to achieve. Although future trajectories seem to suggest increased confrontation over the East and South China Seas, several contributors to these proceedings offered ideas that individually or in combination might improve the prospects for negotiated settlements. The common theme of these ideas is to focus on economic collaboration with the hope that economic interdependence will set the stage for settling territorial disputes down the road
