Internationalisation of Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean:

in Need of Robust Policies

  • Jocelyne Gacel-Ávila

Abstract

This article assesses the current process of internationalisation of higher
education in Latin America and the Caribbean. Based on data and findings
from different national, regional, and international studies, it shows
that, while the region’s primary form of internationalisation is student
mobility, the numbers are relatively small compared to other regions
and that other strategies such as internationalisation at home are largely
underdeveloped. The article concludes that, while some progress has been
made in past decades, the internationalisation process needs to be consolidated
and strengthened, particularly in terms of public policy at national
and the regional level.
