23 SES 13 D, Educating Europeans? Mobilisation as Education? Paradoxes and Contradictions of the Politics of Education through Europe
This contribution will discuss intersections within Higher Education where Internationalization meets Europeanization, Inclusion meets Exclusion and Education meets Economics, Politics and Organization. Throughout Europe, Internationalization is stated to be an educational goal. But instead of finding educational considerations in focus in the policies and discourses about internationalization of higher education, the research and research-based debate seems to be framed by economic, political and organizational perspectives. In this sense, Internationalization of higher education might be used more as a tool for the construction and manifestation of the project of Europeanization than for educational reasons. Corresponding to e.g. the construction of the inner European market in an economic sense or the consolidation of ‘Fortress’ Europe restricting migration movements from outside the EU, many incitements for mobility within Europe are available, whereas recent developments have made it considerably more difficult for e.g. Non-European students to share the educational ‘market’ of European Countries. In this sense, the intended delimitation of education through internationalization can be understood to be partly exclusive. On a global perspective, brain-trains, transnational or foreign filial campuses as well as global dynamics of knowledge can in a similar way be discussed as partly including and partly excluding internationalization.
