Strategy and Management presents: Moving beyond academia: addressing societal problems via internationalisation

Internationalisation in HE is still mainly focused on (student) mobility, and to a limited extent on IaH. However, some of the big societal problems we face (e.g. populism, radicalisation) require internationalisation experts to play a greater role in tackling them, by helping to educate the public. The session will explore how internationalisation can be used to solve larger societal problems through introducing concepts and displaying findings from a unique experimental design study.
