GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES ON HIGHER EDUCATION

Philip Altbach's new book has just been released by John Hopkins University Press. Global Perspectives on Higher Education gathers up-to-date version of his best insights. Altbach discusses the global trends that increasingly affect higher education, including the implications of mass enrollments, the logic of mass higher education systems around the world, specific challenges facing Brazil, Russia, India, and China, and globalization.

The book "Global and Local Internationalization", coauthored by CIHE director Hans de Wit together with Elspeth Jones and Robert Coelen has been released by Sense Publishers. Offering a range of perspectives on internationalization in higher education from a globally dispersed group of authors, this book reflects the many facets of the theme. It reminds us that, while internationalization is strongly connected to the globalization of society, at the same time it is deeply embedded in local political, economic and social structures, systems and cultures.
