The international dimension of higher education is a theme that is getting more priority on the agenda of institutions of higher education, national governments, and regional and international organizations. The globalization of our economies and societies has an impact on our higher education sector, in the same way as higher education through its research, teaching and services influences this process of globalization. In Latin America, internationalization is getting recognized as an important phenomenon that is influencing the direction of its education and society. Little though is known about the development of this process, and what are the trends, issues and opportunities for the internationalization of higher education in Latin American countries and the region as a whole. This book looks at the Latin American way in which the international dimension is evolving, recognizing the specific cultural, linguistic, political and economic characteristics of the region and each of its individual countries and institutions of higher education. Higher Education in Latin America: The International Dimension provides a comparative analysis of internationalization issues, trends and opportunities in higher education in selected Latin American countries at the institutional, national and regional level. These countries include Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico and Peru. The book addresses the specific elements of the internationalization process, such as mobility, curriculum, linkages, networks, etc. but instead of looking at them in detail they are presented as part of a more comprehensive overview of policies, programs and activities at all three levels.
