In an intent to address regional needs and pave the way for a change of scale in the support mechanisms, UNIMED carried out a study launched by the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), aimed at being an effective tool for policy-makers and other stakeholders. While adopting a comprehensive approach regarding internationalisation, the study presents an overview of the current regional situation in terms of higher education cooperation, mapping key features and patterns specific to the region. The study’s recommendations are directed towards international organizations, governments, universities, and the civil society, demonstrating that only a joint effort shall guarantee the strengthening of this international dimension of education.
