"Europe and the Global South" - EAIE Forum magazine editorial, Spring 2021

This issue of Forum shines a spotlight on the longstanding ties between European higher education institutions and the ‘Global South’. Although the Global South is a contested term in itself, it is clear that Europe has been engaging with countries facing development challenges (in various world regions) for decades and that this engagement spans research partnerships, capacity building, student mobility and more.

In compiling this issue, we were keen to enable readers to deepen their understanding of engagement between Europe and the Global South, highlighting successes and challenges related to collaboration and focusing on opportunities for the future. Similarly, we wanted to understand a little more about the state of internationalisation in the various countries considered to be part of the Global South, and how or whether this was shaping the perspectives or priorities of European institutions in working with Southern partners and stakeholders.

"Internationalisation for all" - EAIE Forum magazine (Winter 2021) call for proposals

Forum magazine is now accepting submissions for the 2021 Winter edition on ‘Internationalisation for all’. This issue of the EAIE member magazine will examine the distributed nature of international engagement, framing internationalisation as a whole-of-institution endeavour with multiple nodes of leadership and activity.

Recognising that internationalisation is pervasive and stretches far beyond the international office, this edition of Forum seeks to explore the significant international engagement of faculty, staff and students as actors and champions of internationalisation at multiple levels across an institution.

In doing so, this edition seeks to shine a spotlight on those instances of international engagement which might otherwise remain hidden or go unacknowledged within an institution. In many cases, these forms of internationalisation are harder to capture, as they are driven less by formal strategy than by the individual commitment of staff and students to a global mindset and opportunities for international collaboration.

"Resilience in uncertain times" - EAIE Forum magazine editorial, Winter 2020

There is much talk of resilience in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, be it personal, professional, or institutional. Indeed, many of us have been called upon to reflect on our own capacity to cope with change and uncertainty in a world turned upside down. But what does resilience mean in the context of international education, and is it a new concept?
