Facing outward

As we come together in Geneva to celebrate 30 years of the Annual EAIE Conference and Exhibition, we reflect on how our field has grown and where we are going. To further advance international engagement in the current political moment of rising insular sentiments, it’s imperative to continue ‘facing outward’. This year’s theme encourages us to consider internal practices that foster international cooperation as well as the external environment that enables and challenges our work in the internationalisation of higher education. The Conference Conversation Starter features seven essays on hot topics presented by authors from various backgrounds and different parts of the world. This sampling of thought leadership encourages us to cultivate practices that are inclusive, critical and outward-looking.
