Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has had serious impacts on higher education in Turkey, like it has had on higher education in other countries. Facing such a global health crisis, which was unexpected, the Council of Higher Education, which is responsible for the nation-wide governance of higher education in Turkey, took a prompt decision to ensure the health and well-being of university staff and students, while at the same time, enhancing universities’ capability to continue teaching remotely during the pandemic. It is against this background that this chapter explores how the centralised governance of higher education in Turkey became even more centralised, considering that quality and digital inequality were top priorities on the governance agenda, with international student mobility being harder to regulate.

Trans-national Perspectives on Access, Equity, and Internationalization
Refugees and Higher Education provides a cross-disciplinary lens on one American university’s approach to studying the policies, practices, and experiences associated with the higher education of refugee background students. The focus is not only on refugee education as an issue of access and equity, but also on this phenomenon as seen through the lens of internationalization. What competencies are called for among university faculty and staff welcoming refugee-background students to their institutional contexts? How might “distance learning” be considered anew? These challenges and opportunities for institutional growth will be closely considered by this group of authors from educational leadership, social work, curriculum development, and higher education itself. They address key world regions, and sub-topics ranging from online education in refugee camps to the Brazilian and Colombian responses to the emerging crisis in Venezuela. Scholars researching refugee education cross-nationally often find that refugee education literature is parsed by disciplinary field. This book, in contrast, offers a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary overview of refugee education issues around the world. These perspectives also provide key insights for faculty and staff at higher education institutions that currently enroll asylees or refugees, as well as those that may do so in the future.
