Higher education’s crucial nexus of local and global Analysis of higher education internationalisation has typically gone in two directions. Those concerned with the practical aspects of internationalisation – such as student mobility programmes, campus internationalisation efforts and similar initiatives – have been focused on the ‘local’ aspects of the theme.
