This chapter examines policies and strategies employed by Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, and Malaysia to benchmark their universities with highly ranked (so-called world-class) universities. Specifically, this chapter reviews the strategies that selected Asian governments have adopted to make themselves into regional “hubs” of higher education, particularly the means they adopt to promote transnational higher-education governance.
