Forum magazine and Blog

The EAIE author community is ever expanding. We welcome submissions from members and non-members alike, and from internationalisation professionals in all capacities. You can find specific information on how to contribute to our two main platforms below.


Forum is the EAIE member magazine, published three times a year in spring, summer and winter. The magazine is themed, approaching just one single issue from multiple angles and a range of geographies each time. As soon as a theme and deadline are known, we open a general call for articles. Upcoming theme descriptions can be found on this page. Submissions can be sent to EAIE Publications. EAIE members receive the magazine in print at home, but can also access it online.

'Unexpected' internationalisation

Please submit your article to EAIE Publications by 15 June 2018.

Internationalisation, over several decades of development and evolution, is now widely considered to be a mainstream phenomenon. Of course, international agendas and activities are not equally visible or uniformly implemented in higher education institutions across Europe and elsewhere. However, our sense of what internationalisation is and how it manifests is increasingly refined. So, can internationalisation still surprise us? Are there places where internationalisation is happening, or ways in which this work is being approached, that are somehow unanticipated, largely unseen to a wider audience, or particularly remarkable in light of special circumstances?

This issue of Forum is devoted to an exploration of ‘unexpected’ internationalisation, which could be considered from such perspectives as:

  • Internationalisation taking place in what might be considered especially remote geographic locations
  • Internationalisation taking place in the context of institutions that may have been traditionally seen as marginalised from mainstream higher education – for example, in institutions catering to students with physical or cognitive challenges
  • Internationalisation involving underrepresented populations, for example, in the context of institutions serving low-income students or with missions that are tightly focused on workforce development for the local economy
  • Internationalisation through mobility from, to and between unexpected places
  • Internationalisation outside the ‘usual suspects’ (ie tertiary education) such as in vocational education
  • Informal internationalisation, ie happening outside educational institutions
  • Unusual contacts across borders that can be considered having the same effects as internationalisation
  • Internationalisation though gaming and other online communities
  • Internationalisation in conflict areas
