Formatted abstract
Beginning with a brief history and account of the philosophy underlying education for
international understanding, this paper examines why education for international
understanding (EIU) is central to the mission of both UNESCO and higher education
institutions. It argues that EIU has much to contribute to the revitalisation of higher
education, and that higher education has much to contribute to the development of
EIU. An analysis of examples of good practice in higher education precedes a set of
suggestions as to the strategies that might be employed to mainstream EIU in higher
education.
