Winter Forum 2014

Theme: Ethics in international education

Equal access to international higher education is essential for the personal development of global citizens and for ensuring prosperous and peaceful societies. Providing international education comes with a responsibility towards individuals and the needs of home and host societies alike. As international education grows, its adverse ethical effects such as brain-drain, low quality education and breach of academic freedom have been much discussed, raising questions on the justification of tuition fees, the global effects of attracting talented students from abroad and the right to high quality education. 
The winter issue of Forum magazine will explore the theme in greater detail. We are looking for articles on a variety of topics including:
  • Merit-based vs financial means-based access to international education
  • Recruitment practices and scholarships
  • Academic freedom
  • Brain-drain and brain-circulation 
  • Rights of international students and staff
  • Fraud (plagiarism, diploma mills)
  • Needs of home and host societies
  • Cultural values and biases

Submit your 800–1200 word article to by 15 October 2014.
