"I have nothing against foreigners, but ..."
Event organized by the WU Vice-Rector for Research and Human Resources
Internationality has many faces, and is widely accepted as a success factor in a globalized world. And yet having an immigrant background is seen as a disadvantage. What does internationality mean for us personally, and for our everyday life at an international university? How do we deal with things that feel “foreign” and define our own concept of what’s “normal”? We’ll be talking about opportunities, challenges, and (academic) freedom in a world where borders are becoming more and more open – or are they?
