Institutional policies as the key to building sustainable international higher education

We all see the benefits of the internationalisation of higher education and its potential to achieve sustainable development. But how can we make internationalisation more sustainable and maintain its value for education and research? Institutional policies are a systemic way to make pervasive and effective changes, while shaping new opportunities. This session will explore how institutional policies can help reach international and sustainability goals by 2030 and 2050.
