The African Network for Internationalization of Education (ANIE)

During my recent research efforts I came across the website of The African Network for Internationalization of Education (ANIE). ANIE is a relatively new independent, non-profit and non-governmental network/organization created to improve the international dimension of African higher education. According to ANIE’s website, the main objectives of the network are as follows:

* To contribute to the development and understanding of internationalization of higher education in Africa through high impact research projects and publications

* To inform policy decisions related to the international dimension of higher education in Africa with high quality research evidence

* To build/strengthen and sustain Africa’s research capacity on internationalization of higher education
To achieve these objectives, the network brings together African scholars to take the lead in developing priority research programs and enhancing use of research findings for policy formulation and policy development in the African higher education sector.

You can link to the ANIE website here. Additionally, ANIE will be holding their first annual conference on September 3-4, 2009 with “Trends, Challenges and Realities of Internationalization of Higher Education in Africa” as the theme. You can learn more about the ANIE conference here.
