Higher education must join up internationalisation and development, by Ranjika Bhandari at US Int'l Inst. For Ed.
Thoughtful piece on the need to bring "internationalization" (the reecruitment of students from the Global South to the Global North) and the challenges of global povertytogether. "We must do more to steer these bright minds towards solving regional problems" says Bhandari. This is a piece in a deeper discussion about the impact of unequal global development to the world of Higher Education.
Dr. Olugbmiro Jedede, Secretary-General of the African Association for Universities has a very strong message in calling for an end to the 21st century brain drain of African students in Higher Education as reported by Times Higher Education Phil Baty.
