In an era of the knowledge society, one would expect to encounter a sense of urgency in assuring the free flow of higher education across national borders. Yet, to the contrary, there is a substantial reluctance to the integration of this sector into the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS).

Though higher education has a higher calling, it will not be able to compete successfully for necessary resources unless it adapts to the rules of the World Trade Organization. © 2006 Elsevier Inc.
