Nelly Stromquist, professor of International Development Education at the University of Southern California, and a visiting professor at Harvard University, in an article on how globalization is impacting individuals (and governments) in new and different ways stated: “Education, at its deeper level, is about helping people to deal with their environment and, as necessary, to transform it. Globalization is introducing multiple changes to our environments and imposing more commonality than divergence” (Stromquist, 2002). Nowhere is this more obvious than in South East Asia where transnational collaboration has become essential in a number of fields. The need for a common language that would facilitate such collaboration is leading to some new and unique partnerships.
