"In order to make sense of this complex policy landscape, the American Council on Education’s (ACE) Center for Internationalization and Global and Engagement (CIGE) and the Boston College Center for International Higher Education (CIHE) undertook a comparative analysis of the array of government-initiated higher education internationalization policies and programs in place around the world. Our hope is that the results of this analysis, as presented throughout this report, will provide a framework for policymakers and institutional leaders to better understand existing initiatives, think critically about their own policies and practices in light of the broader global context, and identify synergies among policies that provide opportunities for collaboration".
