Why were they founded? Who and where are their members? How can they be contacted? What do they do, i.e. what is their lifeblood?
A new publication by the Academic Cooperation Association, the
Handbook of International Associations in Higher Education
strives to answer these questions by systematically presenting one hundred higher education associations from various continents as well as their global counterparts. Most importantly, the publication seeks to showcase the interrelation among the various networks and, by doing so, to provide information for future cooperation, partnerships and true networking.
The publication is supported by the Asia-Europe Foundation through the ASEM Education Hub (AEH).
