Here you can find all the information about the books in the Going Global series, written by practitioners for practitioners, containing a wealth of experience and interpretation of HE challenges and opportunities.
In collaboration with UCL IOE Press, we are proud to present Volume 6 in the series entitled 'Building nations, connecting cultures'.
Building on the key themes of education policy, economic development and engagement, this sixth volume considers the role of tertiary education in nation-building as well as the importance of international engagement and initiatives that demonstrate the strength of higher education’s cross-border networks and their unique contribution to a shared sustainable future.
The book captures the important debates and lessons learned from Going Global 2016 for researchers, policymakers and tertiary education practitioners to use in developing these conversations further, and as guidance for applying and advancing these ideas within their own institutional and policy settings. Edited by Mary Stiasny and Tim Gore of the University of London, the book arises from the presentations, discussions and panel sessions held at the Going Global conference that took place in Cape Town, South Africa in May 2016.

Going Global 2016: Thought-pieces, 'Building nations, connecting cultures'
In this series of thought-pieces, a selection of contributors to the Going Global publication offer a taste of the discussions which took place at Going Global 2016, held in Cape Town, South Africa.
Each year we invite our conference contributors to develop their ideas for publication in a collection of essays, selected and edited by Mary Stiasny and Tim Gore of the University of London. The pieces reflect the distinctiveness of the Going Global conference, which comes from its wide geographical coverage and the broad range of issues its contributors address.
The thought-pieces currently available are:
- From sanctuary in health to university of sanctuary (William Mitchell and Melanie Haith-Cooper)
- Opening the doors to the disadvantaged (Graeme Atherton)
- Higher Education System in Russia: reform process and dynamics of internationalization (Irina Arzhanova, Pavel Arefiev, Marina Baryshnikova, Dmitry Derman, Alexander Klyagin)
- With deep roots and global vision: building partnerships through international exchange at the Intercultural University of Hidalgo, Mexico (Veronica Kugel and Rocío Ruiz de la Barrera)
