A wealth of nations

This year’s EAIE Conference Conversation Starter encourages us to think about issues of ‘wealth’ from multiple perspectives. Addressing topics as varied as international higher education policy and practice, notions of power and privilege, global civic responsibility and environmental sustainability, it is certain to spark your interest and its fair share of conversations.
