It is common nowadays to talk about inclusivity and comprehensive internationalisation as if they are the norm – but in most European institutions, internationalisation is managed by the international office and inclusion by a different unit. How can these two streams merge? Can internationalisation be truly inclusive? How can internationalisation leaders make it a reality for all students? This session presents a project that may hold the key.
