An empirical study on the determinants of international student mobility: a global perspective

An empirical study on the determinants of international student mobility: a global perspective | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

This paper, based on the data of 48 countries and regions from 1999 to 2008, studies the economic and educational determinants of how countries of different types attract international students. The study finds that: the volume of merchandise trade between countries facilitates international student mobility across borders; international students from developing countries put the same weights on educational and economic factors for peer developing countries as potential destinations, while only economic factors are taken into consideration for developed countries as potential destinations. On the other hand, international students from developed countries often value educational factors more for developed countries as possible destinations, while equally weigh educational and economic factors for developing countries as possible destinations. Therefore, countries aiming to attract talents from other countries should pay more attention to attract international students and encourage them to seek working opportunities in local employment markets after finishing study. - Springer

[Canada] Plus de 200 000 étudiants appellent le gouvernement à soutenir l'avenir de la recherche | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

MONTRÉAL, le 24 mars 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - À la veille du dépôt du budget du gouvernement Couillard, le Conseil national des cycles supérieurs de la Fédération étudiante universitaire du Québec (CNCS-FEUQ) a dévoilé aujourd'hui une lettre ouverte signée par une quinzaine d'associations universitaires représentant plus de 200 000 étudiants québécois pour rappeler au gouvernement ses engagements en matière de recherche et de relève scientifique. «En 2013, la Politique nationale de la recherche et de l'innovation (PNRI), lancée par le gouvernement précédent, prévoyait l'octroi de 1 500 bourses d'études et de 1 200 stages en milieu pratique. Depuis son élection, le gouvernement Couillard a remis en cause les divers engagements de la PNRI, tant et si bien que le Québec ne dispose, aujourd'hui, d'aucun énoncé de politique scientifique. Les Fonds de recherche du Québec (FRQ) et l'ensemble de la communauté scientifique souffrent de cette absence de vision, dans un contexte marqué par les compressions successives imposées aux universités» déplorent Jonathan Bouchard, président de la FEUQ, et Bruno Belzile, président du CNCS-FEUQ.

Does academic freedom mean researchers need not reveal their funding sources? | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

The University of Delaware is refusing to fulfill a congressman's request that it release information about who is funding a prominent climate change skeptic’s research. The university is the first of seven institutions facing similar requests to publicly deny them, citing concerns about academic freedom. Delaware’s refusal raises important questions about the line between protecting free inquiry and preserving research integrity, and signals a reversal of sorts from an earlier position on controversial research funding. And not everyone agrees that academic freedom covers a decision to keep funding sources secret. (...) - @insidehighered, par Colleen Flaherty, March 24, 2015
