Internationalization: global and local

Offering a range of perspectives on internationalization in higher education from a globally dispersed group of authors, Global and Local Internationalization (Sense Publishers) highlights that while internationalization is strongly connected to the globalization of society, at the same time it is deeply embedded in local political, economic and social structures, systems and cultures. Co-edited by Center for International Higher Education Director Hans de Wit (with Elspeth Jones, Robert Coelen and Jos Beelen), the volume focuses on six aspects: Internationalization in local and global contexts; local and global drivers for change; global and local dimensions of curriculum internationalization; outcomes of local and global international education; internationalization for local and global employability and regional and national cases of local and global internationalization.
