This chapter identifies four separate frameworks that characterize student protest in Asia: the ways in which education systems have expanded and evolved, altering the campus and social context in which students study and protest; change in student collective identity over time; the different policies that controls the collective movement of student activists; and the inspiration and borrowed models of student activists from fellow students in other Asian countries. Patriotic stories of student activism illustrate the context and structures that shape student movements against the government.
