The other side of mobility

Stockholm, 12-14 June 2005

In cooperation with the Internationational Programme Office, the Högskoleverket and the Swedish Institute
Hosted by the Royal Institute of Technology and supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers

ACA organised this conference together with its three Swedish members: the International Programme Office, the Högskoleverket and the Swedish Institute. The event was hosted by Stockholm’s Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). The Nordic Council of Ministers kindly supported the conference through a grant.

The event targeted practitioners of internationalisation, academics and political decision-makers. It was designed for a participation of up to 250 delegates.

Keynote speaker at this ACA conference was Swedish writer Henning Mankell. Internationally acclaimed author Henning Mankell gained bestseller stardom with his series of crime novels about inspector Kurt Wallander. The conference provided an opportunity to meet the author and hear him speak about his international experience.

As every ACA conference, the Other Side of Mobility, also featured carefully selected high-level speakers from among higher education and internationalisation experts. Among them was Peter Scott, the President of ACA and eminent higher education theorist, and Ulrich Teichler, the world’s leading scholar on mobility in higher education.
