Universities are more interested than ever in collaborating with overseas institutions of higher education and in building new programmes and campuses around the world. Interest is especially high in building relationships with countries in the Persian Gulf and in Asia. But as universities move into countries with authoritarian regimes, what challenges do they face? Are universities forced to make compromises to longstanding values of personal and academic freedom? Each of the speakers will talk about the challenges as they’ve experienced them and any lessons they’ve learned.
This session is hosted by The Chronicle of Higher Education as part of our 2015 media session series.
