Internationalisation and reform of higher education: global challenges and local interpretations
by Galina Telegina
International Journal of Management Concepts and Philosophy (IJMCP), Vol. 5, No. 4, 2011

Abstract: 'Globalisation' and 'internationalisation' have been dominant concepts in the development of higher education policy no less than in business. This paper analyses the 'semantics' and 'pragmatics' of these key concepts in the discourse of higher education. The common features of higher education reforms in Europe and worldwide which constitute the contemporary social, political and economic conditions for education and social policy making are analysed in connection with the tensions of globalisation. The processes of translation and recontextualisation involved in the implementation of similar policies in specific national settings are then explored in the context of the transition in the higher education system of Russia.
