National and institutional strategies in a globalized environment : Hubs, World Class Universities and Academic Capitalism

Fourth roundtable of the international workshop, Globalizations of Higher Education and Research, May 29-30, 2018, University Paris 5 Descartes

May 30, 14:30 – 18:00 

According to countries and regions’ history and institutional context, the globalization of Higher Education and Research (HER) shows different impacts in terms of international competition and collaboration strategies as well as defining winners (that position themselves as global HER hubs or poles of attraction of students, faculty and resources) and losers (such as countries suffering from students and researchers brain drain) of this process. In this session we thus want to focus on the distinctive mechanisms that were put in place in order to produce different regimes of HER at both an institutional and a country level. We will also discuss about imitation or mimicking possibilities between different countries and institutions as well as about the consequences of a combined and uneven internationalization of HER.
