Some issues are likely to be different for different countries and different disciplines, e.g.:

  • funding,
  • career path and opportunities,
  • academic degrees,
  • compulsory exams.

I think it is worth to encourage people to state is explicitly, both in their questions and their answers.

This general theme has been covered in a bunch of different topics on meta at this point, but I think this one is worth an upvote. Much of the focus has been on avoiding localization in the question, or at least specifying what field/geography you're asking from.

It think there's an equal burden on the answering poster to make where they're coming from explicit. Our answers, even at their most biased, are colored by experience.
