Spring Forum 2016

Theme: Internationalisation in a conflicted world

Conflict – political or economic, religious or cultural, ethnic or linguistic – is a fact of life in the complex world in which we live. At home and abroad, the work of international educators may be affected by everything from flashpoint emergencies to longstanding and deeply rooted social schisms. These matters have real effects on individual students and scholars, as well as on institutional policies, programming and decision-making. As a result, higher education institutions must develop and implement strategies that respond meaningfully and creatively to situations that may be characterised by distrust, profound uncertainty, and even violence. Safety and individual rights are key components of internationalisation in a globalised and conflicted world. Potential article topics include:
  • Sending students and scholars to conflict zones: assessing danger and managing risk
  • Establishing and maintaining partnerships in conflict zones
  • Evaluating credentials from students/institutions in conflict zones
  • Fostering effective internationalisation at home, and of the curriculum, in times of rising radicalisation, nationalism, and xenophobia
  • Crisis management: incidents on home and host campuses
  • Sending minority students to ‘less hospitable’ countries
  • Counselling international students facing crises in their home countries
  • Crafting institutional ‘foreign policies’ that address issues of conflict and uncertainty
