THE Awards Asia | June 21, 2023

Widely known as the ‘Oscars of higher education’, the THE Awards were a fixture in the UK higher education calendar for 14 years, before we took this prestigious event overseas for the first time in 2019.

These awards offer a major international platform to recognise outstanding leadership and institutional performance, and celebrate the continent’s higher education excellence.

The response from entrants over the past four years has far exceeded our expectations, both in terms of the number, and their wide geographical spread. It is a great privilege for us and our panel of external judges to read about your proudest achievements.

For this fifth running of these awards, the glittering final ceremony will once again feature at the THE Asia Universities Summit, taking place at The Chinese University of Hong Kong on 21–23 June 2023. As a key part of this summit, which attracts senior delegates from across the region and beyond, we will bring even greater attention to the brilliant work of our finalists, and so to the diversity and dynamism of Asian and Middle Eastern higher education as a whole.

We very much look forward to receiving your entries once again.

CIHE 2023 Biennial Conference on International Higher Education | June 9 – 10, 2023

The Center for International Higher Education (CIHE) is delighted to announce the inaugural 2023 Biennial Conference on International Higher Education at Boston College on June 9-10, 2023.

Since 1995, CIHE has promoted the belief that an international perspective is needed to foster enlightened policies and practices in higher education. This biennial gathering deepens that commitment by providing a new forum for rich dialogue in a collaborative, interdisciplinary, and intimate environment.

The field has grown since the center’s founding almost 30 years ago. The conference will celebrate this expansion, by convening both established thinkers and newer voices. We aim for all participants and partners to leave inspired, energized and engaged with others about work they might do together in the years to come.

20th IMISCOE Annual Conference | July 3 – 6, 2023

Inequalities invariably intertwine with migration. On the micro-scale, socio-economic inequalities shape the propensity to migrate. On a macro-scale, South-North and East-West dynamics act as migration drivers. Recent mobility-related debates include inequalities as developmental outcomes of migration, as an implication of social and economic remittances, and as an issue to be addressed by public policies. Inequality-related challenges are also discussed in the context of gender, ethnic and racial disparities, urban segregation, or labour market segmentation in receiving countries. Inequalities intertwine with migration knowledge production. Postcolonial power relations determine who gets to define the research agenda, who receives research funding and, consequently, who gets to theorise migration knowledge.

There is a growing need for scientific and political discussion on new inequalities and challenges for the future, such as the demographic, climate and technological changes, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the mass forced migration following conflicts such as the current war in Ukraine. As an efficient public response is still lacking, research and academic debates are much needed to support political decision-making processes. The focus on inequalities of the 2023 IMISCOE Annual Conference can facilitate the strengthening of topics in IMISCOE debates, from different methodological approaches (quantitative and qualitative) and various disciplinary focuses (including but not limited to economics, sociology, demography, political science, anthropology, law, history and geography).

For the 20th IMISCOE Annual Conference in Warsaw, we invite submissions of Individual Paper Proposals, Workshop Proposals and Panel Proposals that relate to the broad topic of migration and inequalities.
