March 2013

On February 13th, the Institute of International Education and the American Institute for Foreign Study Foundation celebrated the launch of Latin America’s New Knowledge Economy: Higher Education, Government, and International Collaboration.
The last few decades have been a time of impressive growth and change for higher education in Latin America. Latin America’s New Knowledge Economy reviews the policies, institutions, and programs that helped bring about these changes, as well as their outcomes in terms of access, workforce training, and research. In the book, leading scholars from Latin America in the U.S. explore key issues, including higher education’s role in advanced workforce development, trends in academic mobility and outcomes for brain circulation, and investment in the region by U.S. universities and corporations.
Latin America’s New Knowledge Economy is the seventh book in the Global Education Research Reports Series from IIE and the AIFS Foundation. Previous books have examined higher education initiatives and exchanges in China, India, and the Middle East, as well as new developments in global mobility.
