6th International Scientific Conference – EMAN 2022 – Economics and Management: How to Cope With Disrupted Times, Ljubljana, Slovenia, March 24, 2022, CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS, published by: Association of Economists and Managers of the Balkans, Belgrade, Serbia; ISBN 978-86-80194-57-8, ISSN 2683-4510


In recent years, most countries around the world, particularly in Europe, have mainstreamed internationalization at the national and in­stitutional levels. Europe is seen around the world as a best-practice case for internationalization, but nowadays with significant challenges hav­ing to regard the new realities: as the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandem­ic and the situation in Ukraine, but also the massive impact of the refugees who come over the previous waves of immigrants and which can be meet all over Europe. In this study, we present the tendencies of internationali­zation in higher education. If, until today, the globalization of economies and societies influenced the internationalization of higher education, today the disruptive times determine the enhanced importance of knowledge to find solutions to these issues. This study presents the pillars of the European internationalization strategy, as regards European Higher Education com­pared with other regions of the world, and gives a few good-practice cases in internationalization.
