About this book

This book takes a critical look at the internationalisation of higher education and argues for the importance of grounding education in spiritual perspectives. Using spiritual traditions to review the practices, programmes, and philosophies of learning that internationalise universities, the author proposes a paradigm for internationalisation that respects other ways of knowing. This focus seeks to decolonize knowledge and promote intercultural understanding, as well as help students achieve holistic personal development while studying abroad.
