Internationalization is becoming more important in higher education and is becoming synonymous with the widespread use of the English language. English has become the dominant teaching language and is used in science publications and other academic activities. In some developing countries, the language is compulsory for teaching and enrolment.

This widespread use of the English language has many advantages, but also creates problems, such as the erosion of cultural diversity and making access to higher education unfair. It creates “Academic colonialism” and creates disadvantages within the education systems of non-English speaking countries.

Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:

  • General issues about globalization and the internationalization of education
