Giving voice to researchers, policy-makers and practitioners through a range of international case studies, Educational Approaches to Internationalization through Intercultural Dialogue interrogates processes of internationalization strategy and practice, from an educational and intercultural dialogue perspective.

Addressing this important, under-discussed area of internationalization – the role of intercultural dialogue – this book provides theoretical reflections and applicable, practical case studies that focus on:

  • Support for integration programmes for international and home students
  • Mobility programmes and initiatives which use an intercultural dialogue approach
  • The place of local languages and cultures in foreign language policies
  • The possibilities within a higher education context
  • The multilingual perspective
  • Student and staff perspectives

Focusing on teaching and learning, and exploring the latest research within the context of internationalization, Educational Approaches to Internationalization through Intercultural Dialogue is a must-read for anyone interested in, or currently involved in designing and implementing internationalization strategies within a higher education institution.
