About the event
Registration (Tilburg University system)
International Student Mobility (ISM) is a prominent aspect of the Internationalization in Higher Education (IHE). Scholarly research on ISM has particularly intensified over the last two decades, which led to a significant improvement in our scientific understanding of the determinants, experiences, and outcomes of ISM. However, surprisingly little connection and exchange exist among researchers across different disciplines, as well as between researchers, practitioners, and policymakers, despite the relevance that scientific knowledge on ISM has for policy and daily practice. The ENIS network, funded by the COST Association, aims to stimulate a more systematic interdisciplinary and international exchange of knowledge on theoretical frameworks, research methodologies, findings, and best practice examples, and for translating scientific findings into recommendations for ISM practice.
In our first Action conference, we will present four thematic reviews on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on ISM flows, social inequalities, the social and cultural integration of students, and labor market outcomes. Next to these general presentations, 30 contributions from scholars and practitioners from different fields and geographical contexts will be presented in five thematic sessions, aiming to stimulate comparative discussions and practical insights into ISM dynamics by bringing fragmented knowledge together, with the main aim of generating new interdisciplinary and innovative empirical perspectives on the phenomenon and translating these into tangible recommendations for stakeholders.
