The conference theme will focus on the nature, challenges and possibilities around internationalization efforts of higher education institutions in an increasingly globalized world. Internationalization in Education is being discussed and debated globally as universities compete for the best students and researchers expand their networks and collaborations across national borders. University reputation and rankings are influenced by the degree of international engagement and many institutions are responding to this imperative. Yet many concerns have been raised about the motives behind internationalization, its benefits and challenges, and the short- and long-term benefits of student and faculty mobility. This conference provides a forum for a critical examination of these and other issues arising from this powerful global phenomenon.

This conference, initiated by the Deans of Education of five partner universities in China, Australia and Canada, is intended to encourage research exchange and collaboration on topics of importance to educators from around the world, but especially of interest in the Asia-Pacific Region. The first conference was held at the University of Sydney in 2010 and focused on Multiculturalism while the second was held at Southwest University in Chongqing, China and focused on Educational Equity and Social Justice in Urban and Rural Education.
