Title: An Analysis of the Global 30 Project: Internationalism in Japanese Higher Education
Authors: Rivers, Damian
Abstract: It is widely acknowledged that Japanese universities are significantly lagging behind those of other major countries in developing and implementing globally focused strategies which aim to internationalize student and faculty populations. The latest government attempt to address this problem was recently announced through the ‘Global 30 Project’ which aims to enable 30 selected universities to attract 300,000 international students to Japan by 2020. These ‘centers for internationalisation’ will receive prioritized financial assistance of 200 to 400 million yen per annum over the next five years, each striving to recruit 3000 to 8000 international students. However, previous attempts at internationalisation within Japanese higher education have been greeted with accusations of insincerity and the masking of a nationalistic agenda. The current paper assesses whether this argument holds-up against the ‘Global 30 Project’ through a critical analysis of the public discourse presented by the government and each of the respective institutions.
