Internationalisation of Higher Education

In the face of intensified bordering practices, higher education policymakers, administrators, and educators are scrambling to reconstruct internationalisation policies and programmes.

And how might pandemic discourses intersect with wider geopolitical logics to reshape global higher education networks?
