The INDISTRA project in the light of the new geopolitics of higher education.

Ferreira Santos, L. (2022, Juni).
The INDISTRA project in the light of the new geopolitics of higher education. Vortrag im Rahmen des Workshops by Katja Brøgger, Associate Professor, Danish School of Education, auf dem Seminar The New Geopolitics of Higher Education, Aarhus University, Denmark.

The resurgence of all sorts of anti-globalization movements has produced huge repercussions in society, and institutions of higher education alike ( (Brøgger, 2021; Brooks, 2022; Habib, 2022; van der Vende, 2021). Knowing that the future of higher education internalization relies strongly on the way countries’ cross-border exchange will evolve (Lee, 2021), my participation in the Course The New geopolitics of Higher Education was aimed at reflecting on the research questions guiding the INDISTRA project (Internationalization and the Digital Transformation) in the light of current geopolitical debates; in particular, how the rise of neo-nationalisms is shaping new discourses and practices in higher education.
