This report evaluates the policies of 26 countries and identifies areas where national governments can provide an enabling environment to their HE institutions to internationalise and forge collaborations. The accompanying Global Gauge is an interactive higher education policy monitor which summarises the responses against each of the 962 measures used in this evaluation, and lists the data sources used.

Report: Social enterprise in a global context

Set against a context of global growth in higher education, this research seeks to understand and enhance the role of international cooperation between higher education institutions and social enterprises.
