Gift, commodity and mutual benefit : analysing the transfer of university knowledge between Thailand and Australia
Rhea, Zane Ma

Data: 1997
Resum: For the last 50 years, Australia has been assisting Thailand with the development of its universities. This has involved the transfer of Australian university knowledge to Thailand and the reproduction of that knowledge in the Thai university system. Initially, this knowledge was transferred in gift-style transactions. In the last decade, both countries have been influenced by the impact of globalization and this influence has provided the impetus for change in the processes of knowledge transfer. University knowledge is now viewed increasingly as a commodity in Australia. Thailand is experiencing a period of economic growth and its needs have also changed. There is evidence that the commodification of university knowledge is not as lucrative as was first envisaged and now there are attempts by both Thai and Australian policy makers to find a framework for the transfer of university knowledge that is of mutual benefit to both.
