The Case Against Internationalization - Planet Academe - The Chronicle of Higher Education

The Case Against Internationalization - Planet Academe - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Cross Border Higher Education | Scoop.it

Is internationalization becoming too popular? When ideas become too popular, then academics, despite their feisty image, are less willing to dissent. Associate deans or assistant professors have plenty of their own battles to fight, like getting their share of the budget or winning tenure. When they see the internationalization theme sweeping across campus, they resign themselves to yet another academic fad. They keep their head below the parapet, quietly focusing on their own or their departments’ interests. Being against internationalization may look like being against diversity: a highly risky personal proposition.

A U.S. Withdrawal from Unesco Would Hurt Higher Education - WorldWise - The Chronicle of Higher Education

A U.S. Withdrawal from Unesco Would Hurt Higher Education - WorldWise - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Cross Border Higher Education | Scoop.it

On September 12, 2002, speaking at the United Nations to mark the first anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, U.S. President George W. Bush announced that the United States would rejoin Unesco. The United States had quit Unesco in 1984 to protest the restrictions on press freedom inherent in the controversial New World Information and Communication Order. That issue, however, had disappeared with the Berlin Wall and a return to the cultural and educational organization was overdue. I was then serving as Unesco’s assistant director-general for education and we were delighted.

International students – no longer welcome?

One of the key features of higher education across the developed world in recent years has been the growth of student migration. Students have increasingly been encouraged to consider universities in other countries when making their study choices, and this has led to a very significant internationalisation of higher education. Some countries – and the United States of America in particular – have a long record of attracting overseas students, many of whom then stayed and contributed to innovation and economic growth. And while it may not have been something that was always stressed as part of the reason for international student recruitment, host countries tended to benefit significantly from the tuition fees paid by these students.

European integration in higher education and research in the Western Balkans - Department of Educational Research

Reliable data and solid analysis of systems of higher education and research are crucial for the ongoing processes of integration of WB countries to EU and NATO, as well as the underlying reforms taking place in a number of policy areas. However, the necessary data about the countries in the region does not exist yet in a consolidated form; therefore it is not possible to study these issues in a comparative manner. So far, this has resulted in the lack of solid evidence basis for policy development on the national or regional level. Higher education institutions or research centres on their own seem not to have the necessary capacity (technical or human) to develop and maintain the data base and do the analysis. The project will cover the period January 2011 – December 2013.

The Debt Crisis and Higher Education Reforms in Greece: A Catalyst for Change by Vangelis Tsiligiris

The Debt Crisis and Higher Education Reforms in Greece: A Catalyst for Change by Vangelis Tsiligiris | Cross Border Higher Education | Scoop.it

The Greek debt crisis has been a major topic in the news for the past two years. Since the introduction of the austerity measures by the IMF and the Troika, the discussion in media about Greece has been focusing on the frequent incidents of social unrest, the prediction of the exact day of bankruptcy, and all the evils of government budget deficits of P.I.G.S.


Despite the gloomy predictions for the future of the Greek economy, the debt crisis has acted as the catalyst for the acceleration of notable changes in the Greece society, which allows a great degree of optimism for the future. A major example of this is the recent reforms in the Greek higher education system.
