Internationalization has come to be seen as an innate good in the discussion of higher education. Universities are expected to be increasingly "international" and participate in a global knowledge economy. But what does internationalization mean for university faculty, students and administrators?

This innovative book brings together leading international and Canadian scholars to discuss internationalization in terms of federal and provincial government policy and institutional practices. Its contributors focus on issues that have received almost no previous attention in the literature, including the implications of internationalization for teaching and learning, conflicting agendas for internationalization, ethical concerns, reviewing the Canadian experience from an international perspective and looking at internationalization in the broader context of Canadian higher education policy.

Written for a wide audience, this is the first book to offer a comprehensive, multidisciplinary analysis of internationalization that includes contributions from critical scholars, government officials and university leaders.
