IAU publication: 'Affirming Academic Values in Internationalisation of Higher Education - A Call for Action'
The International Association of Universities last month published “Affirming Academic Values in Internationalisation of Higher Education – A Call for Action”.
The publication is the output of an ad-hoc expert group on “Re-Thinking Internationalisation”, which has looked at a number of questions such as: Is the concept and the definition of internationalisation keeping up with developments in higher education? Is there a shared understanding of the concept? Has internationalisation lost sight of its central purposes?
The call for action “acknowledges the substantial benefits of the internationalisation of higher education but also draws attention to potentially adverse unintended consequences with a view to alerting higher education institutions to the need to act to ensure that the outcomes of internationalisation are positive and of reciprocal benefit to the HE institutions and the countries concerned.”
More information and the publication are available from the IAU website.
