Internationalisation of universities – the German way

By Marijke Wahlers. The concept of internationalisation at German universities, which has regained considerable strength since the late 1980s, has historically been based on the idea of cooperation and partnership, thanks to the post-1945 belief that only a Germany that was firmly anchored in Europe and the world could be internationally accepted and economically successful. More...

Deep Internationalization & Infrastructure

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/default/server_files/styles/large/public/globalhighered.jpgBy Kris Olds. On experiments in deep internationalization via the development of outward-facing forms of city-based infrastructure.
Over the last several years, it has been interesting to see the development of some new and relatively deep collaborative models of institutional (or 'commercial,' using GATS parlance) presence in territories outside of universities' main campuses.
