This chapter focuses on the development and fragmentation of international education services which transcend national borders. It observes that it is reflected in the the growth of multinational education businesses and new policy assemblages. It further observes that the chapter's usage of ‘policy’ is broad enough to capture the relationship between international business concepts and strategies on the one hand, and policies and regulations on the other. It notes that corporate philanthropy plays a role in partially addressing equity and access issues in the context of privatisation, the other part being fulfilled by national governments and by new forms of global civil society, such as the Clinton Global Initiative.
