Internationalization under Intractable Conflict: The Influence of National Conflict on Israeli Higher Education Institutions' Internationalization Efforts
Yemini, Miri
European Education, v49 n4 p293-303 2017
Intractable conflicts are usually defined as long-lasting, violent, intergroup ones perceived as having no foreseen solutions. Such conflicts heavily affect the societies involved, which invest massive resources in all issues related to the conflict, including various educational elements. Regardless of the context of national conflict, internationalization efforts have become a common reality in the strategy and actions of contemporary higher education institutions, with international, intercultural, and global dimensions integrating into the aims, functions, and delivery of education. This article traces the internationalization process as perceived among various stakeholders involved in policymaking and enactment within a society struggling through intractable conflict, namely, Israel. I scrutinized this process in Israel and explored the apparent mismatch between the theory of internationalization and its practice in the reality of a conflict-ridden society.
