AbstractThe ICMI Study "Mathematics Education in Different Cultural Traditions: A comparative study of East Asia and the West" did not only highlight the importance of interpreting results of international studies in mathematics education in terms of the underlying cultural traditions of the countries concerned, it also signified the recognition of the East Asian cultural tradition as an important source of inspiration in the international scene of mathematics education. For East Asian countries, the past century has been very much a process of searching for an identity. For the rest of the world, the rising presence of East Asia adds richness to the human repertoire of ideas in mathematics education. In this talk, this ICMI study will be used as a starting point to review the involvement of East Asian countries in ICMI activities and in the international scene of mathematics education.
