Globalization has caused an increased international demand for educated labor and in the process made a technical or academic education at the collegiate level crucial for participation in the labor market, especially in industrialized countries. At the same time, globalization has brought with it inequalities in income and employment opportunities, in part because of disparities in access to college preparatory courses as well as the high cost of college for students from low-income families. These disparities have developed not only within nations engaged in the global economy but also between developed and developing nations and within underdeveloped countries that have not yet found clear avenues for global economic engagement.

Issues in Globalization and Social Justice: Comparative Studies in International Higher Education focuses on strategies for expanding access and equity in higher education internationally—a critical challenge in most nations in the faltering global economy. Each volume in this new series will examine contemporary issues with a focus on the historical development of national systems and global concerns about the future of higher education. A balanced understanding of crosscutting, international issues will be needed to stimulate and enable development of fair and just higher education systems that can be forces for economic development.
