Resource description

This study investigates existing or potential areas of overlap between internationalisation and equality and diversity (E&D) agendas in higher education in the UK. It was commissioned by the Equality Challenge Unit and undertaken by the consultants thinkingpeople (www.thinking-people.co.uk) and Nicola Peacock during 2008. Its aims were to: investigate areas of actual and potential synergy between the two agendas in UK higher education; form an understanding of the actual and perceived barriers inhibiting integration of the two agendas; identify gaps in provision and research and outline recommendations for future work, promoting dialogue across the sector and opportunities for sharing and developing effective practice. The research took a small-scale, broad-scope, desk-based approach, involving qualitative interviews and long and short questionnaires, which were collected via email, face-to-face and at the 2008 Annual Conference of the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA, www.ukcisa.org.uk).
