Ethical internationalisation: balancing institutional, national and global responsibilities

Against the backdrop of current debates on the internationalisation of HE, many universities encounter ethical issues. Are the efforts to serve the needs of individual students, as well as the national good, while fulfilling international social responsibility ambitions, all mutually exclusive aims? How should the various agendas be balanced? Based on PhD research, this session presents frameworks and examples on how to develop ethical approaches to the internationalisation of HE.
