Knight, J. Higher education in turmoil. The changing world of internationalisation. Sense Publishers, 2008. ISBN: 978-90-8790-521-7. Pages: 256.

As the title implies, “Higher education in turmoil. The changing world of internationalisation”, provides a critical perspective on the raison d'être, benefits, risks, strategies and outcomes of internationalisation of higher education, in the context of new challenges raised by globalisation. The book is designed to serve academic leaders, policy makers and practitioners alike, to better understand the complexity of the phenomenon and its links with other hotly-debated topics such as quality assurance, accreditation, research, cultural homogenisation, competitiveness, etc.
