The effects of the increasing international academic contacts and the globalisations of research and curriculum in mathematics education are wide spread and their impacts are experienced differently in many countries around the world. This paper reports on data from three focus groups conducted with mathematics educators from universities in Australia and New Zealand, The Philippines and Colombia. It discusses some tensions raised by these academics in coming to grips with the globalisation of their discipline.
