Higher Education in a Globolized Society

6 October 2008

The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the on-going discussion on the implications of globalization for higher education. This paper is one in a series of UNESCO's position papers intended to clearly state the Organisations's views and thinking on key issues relevant to education today.

The aim is to focus UNESCO's standard-setting, capacity building and clearinghouse functions to assist Member-States in the formulation of appropriate policies and strategies to meet the challenges posed to higher education by globalization. As this is a rapidly developing field, the outlined position is likely to evolve as the debate progresses and will be subject to subsequent revisions.
