Higher Education, Internationalisation and Global Development: An Irish Case Study

Nakabugo, Mary Goretti; Munck, Ronaldo; Barrett, Eimear; McEvoy, Peter

Abstract:
European engagement with development co-operation in the Global South has many modalities and there is only agreement that we do not have the answers yet. Here we present an Irish case study of inter-university collaboration with a number of Southern partners to build research capacity through partnership. We provide first a critical introduction to the internationalisation debates which frames our presentation of the various aspects of the Irish African Partnership. This is not posed as a model of best practice but simply as one approach which has developed a philosophy through trial and error. This case study is then related to the broader field of European engagements with development co-operation in the field of higher education. We stress two elements: knowledge is global and so also must be the development imperative; our approach to research building also needs to be forward looking (Foresight) and not looking backwards to what might have worked well in the past, usually somewhere else.
