2019 Winter Forum: The internationalisation research agenda

    • Leadership & strategy


The EAIE is a professional organisation largely dedicated to helping practitioners network among relevant peers and partners, and expand their knowledge base with respect to the work they do in the field. But, internationalisation can also be understood as a subject of study, examined by scholars, policymakers, consultants and even practitioners themselves, all of whom are trying to get a better handle on the contours of this phenomenon in order to better understand current dynamics and enhance future practice.

This issue of Forum aims to provide insight into the current state of play of research on internationalisation, and to advance the conversation about the kinds of issues and ideas that should frame a research agenda for the future.
