Strategic Internationalization: At What Cost? Dr. Desai-Trilokekar explores the possible negative implications of a national policy on internationalization by looking specifically at the Canada case. She offers that Canada’s national strategic internationalization policy depicts a problematic worldview – one that emphasizes societal exclusion rather than inclusion, class hierarchy rather than equity; political borders, rather than mobility; and competition rather than cooperation and reciprocity. In this Trends and Insights, Dr. Desai-Trilolekar addresses these arguments and suggests, provocatively, that the word “strategic” no longer be associated with the word “internationalization.” Feb 09, 2016
