Trends in international(isation of) higher education in a time of geopolitical turmoil
13 June 2023, 2:00 pm–3:00 pm
Join this event to hear Philip Altbach and Hans de Wit consider the key current and future trends in international higher education and what they mean for its internationalisation.
This event is free.
Over the past decades, higher education globally has been driven by three conflicting developments: massification, its role in the global knowledge economy, and internationalisation.
The speakers will explore global higher education and how it has been characterized by inequality, its competitive and neoliberal nature, and the dominance of the Anglophone/European systems. They will also discuss several crises, from tensions between nations to climate change and other pressures.
This online event will be particularly useful for researchers, policy makers and students.
