Abstract

Higher education internationalization can play a major role in developing universities and students' capacities and their opportunities broadly throughout the world. Irrespective of contextual differences within and between countries, nearly all higher education institutions worldwide are engaged in international activities and are seeking to expand them. Engaging with the world is now considered part of the definition of quality in education and research. However, with the current crisis, possible tensions and counter reactions to the development of the internationalization can occur, such as an imminent resistance to a supposed denationalizing effect of internationalization, and related to that the possible development of a new form of local and regional identity, and the increasing influence of competition and market processes as driving factors in internationalization. In this paper we highlight a specific internationalization case study between Europe and South East Asia. We mainly explain the construction process of such historical collaboration, which is the essential element for its sustainability. We open.
