Internationalization has been closely connected with innovation, less so with inclusion. The internationalization goals of many national and institutional initiatives are aimed at enhancing quality, expanding learning opportunities, and engaging with new stakeholders. At the same time, institutions themselves are being transformed by external forces, including migration (involuntary or otherwise), political pressures, and shifting international relations.
