The World Needs More International Higher Education – University World News

Appearing in the April 24, 2015 Global Edition of University World News, this essay offers a solid framework and rationale for all campuses around the world.  Perhaps a bit overly optimistic when the author states “no country…is immune from the process of globalization…” I can think of many.

Yet, I do like the reference to the “virtuous cycle” of internationalization and globalization. I have not read the book, Democratizing Higher Education, where research “shows that international higher education has been an important vehicle…to serve as a positive force for democratizing societies..”  But would there not need to be a foundation of liberal institutions and some pre-existing democratic institutions already in place for this linkage to occur?
