ACA 20th Anniversary Conference: Internationalisation and international mobility. Where do we stand, where are we heading?

The Hague, 9-11 June 2013

Co-organised by Nuffic

ACA’s Annual Conferences have become a synonym for high-quality information, analysis and discussion on current policy and practice-related issues in the area of European and international higher education. They bring together central actors and decision-makers in higher education, such as rectors, vice-rectors, faculty and international relations staff, as well as policy-makers and practitioners from government departments, international institutions, non-governmental organisations and think tanks. And they offer opportunities for learning, exchange and networking at a high level.  

The 2013 Annual Conference will be no exception to this rule, but it is a special event nonetheless. In 2013, ACA will celebrate its 2Oth anniversary.  The conference will be a core element in the celebrations of the jubilee.  For this occasion, we thought it appropriate to return to those themes which were at the centre of our Association’s interest at the time of foundation in 1993 and which always remained high on ACA’s agenda: internationalization and international mobility.  We will deal with these issues in plenaries, but more than in the past also in workshops, to enhance interaction between participants.  The two-day event will take place in The Hague in the Netherlands, and will be preceded by a welcome reception and a social programme on 9 June.
