GEEP Closing Conference
Rethinking internationalization and university collaboration: academics, actors and analysis
Sted: Pilestredet 46 Tid: 09:00
Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (HiOA) will be hosting the closing conference of the GEEP project (Gender, Equality, Education & Poverty).
As a result of the increase in internationalization of higher education institutions, leading to greater university collaboration and the creation of regional hubs (e.g. the Bologna Process, Tuning Africa, etc.) one of the outcomes has led to the critique of the concept of internationalization. The GEEP project believes that it is time to rethink who the actors are in internationalization, to analyze its purposes and rationales, and the role played by academics. Actors may refer to policy makers, NGO staff, or others.
