NEW PUBLICATIONS African Higher Education: The International Dimension This book, just published jointly by the Center for International Higher Education, Boston College (USA) and the Association of African Universities (Ghana), is the culmination of more than two years of work, involves a number of prominent Africans and overseas experts interested in internationalization of higher education in Africa. The book includes chapters that discuss the scope and state of internationalization, regional actors and programs of internationalization, mobility of students inside and outside the continent, and case studies of 11 countries. Each case study chapter captures the state of internationalization in respective countries from several perspectives, presents the main players of the internationalization process and discusses issues that confront as well as promote internationalization in the region. This book, the first of its kind, is co-edited by Dr. Damtew Teferra, director for Africa and the Middle East at the Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program and founding director of the International Network for Higher Education in Africa, and Dr. Jane Knight, Canada’s Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. The book will be freely distributed to major African university libraries and relevant research organizations. For commercial copies, please consult the websites of the two institutions. The initiative is financially supported by Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Ford Foundation and the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and hosted at the Center for International Higher Education.

It is the second in a series, following a 2001 study, and compares data from the two years when possible. These studies are the only comprehensive source of data on internationalization in U.S. higher education institutions of all sectors. w w w. a c e n e t .e d u /p r o g r a m s / i n t e r n a t i o n a l / mapping2008 Forecasting International Student Mobility This new project, developed by the British Council in partnership with the Economist Intelligence Unit, aims to develop country specific on international student demand for education that are short to mid-term.
