Indian Higher Education: An Overview and Opportunities for Foreign Participation
This paper provides an overview of the Indian higher education system, with a special focus on the current status and possibilities of foreign participation in the sector. It presents an introduction to higher education in India and discusses important systemic challenges in the sector, specifically problems of insufficient access, disparities between social groups and regions, and quality control. These problems stem from the lack of public investment and a flawed regulatory structure, leading to the rapid and unregulated growth of private provision.

A Perspective on Canada-India Higher Educational Partnerships: Prospects and Obstacles
The study looks at the growing interest in Canada in involvement with India, and examines developments in the Indian education sector as a possible area to focus the desire for greater engagement. It catalogues obsctacle on both the Indian and Canadian sides hindering the development of closer educational ties. While acknowledging the crucial role played by individual institutions and provincial governments in launching new initiatives, the paper identified the importance of a national strategy, and funding, to make Canadian institutions informed and competitive.

The Asia Pacific Foundation is an independent resource for Canadians on contemporary Asia and Canada-Asia relations. As a national not-for-profit organization established by an Act of the Federal Parliament in 1984, the Foundation brings together people and knowledge to provide the most current and comprehensive research, analysis and information on Asia and on Canada’s transpacific relations. It promotes dialogue on economic, security, political and social issues, helping to inform public policy, the Canadian public and Canada’s Asia practitioners. The Foundation is funded principally through an endowment from the Government of Canada and a grant from the Province of British Columbia.
