Empowering Higher Education Institutions through Information Sharing and Improved Governance

This year’s conference, organised by the World Bank and Centre for Mediterranean Integration, will focus on Empowering Higher Education Institutions through Information Sharing and Improved Governance.

Our Head of Education and Society Dr Jo Beall will be speaking at the opening plenary on key trends in international higher education - both challenges and opportunities - and the importance of avoiding the worst excesses of isolationism and expansionism as we seek to create institutions that can support global communities of students and scholars prepared for a global economy and a multicultural world.

Other speakers include the British Council's Country Director for Lebanon, Donna McGowan, Dr Stephen Jackson from QAA and Professor John Gabriel of the London Metropolitan University.

The British Council is a partner for this event.
