Call for Papers: Global Perspectives on Strategic International Partnerships

The Institute of International Education (IIE) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) invite you to propose a chapter for an upcoming publication, Global Perspectives on Strategic International Partnerships

The second in a series of joint publications, this volume seeks to provide a multitude of perspectives on strategic international partnerships and address key areas of interest for the global higher education community. The inaugural publication in this series, Global Perspectives on Joint and Double Degree Programs, addressed key aspects of creating and administering collaborative degree programs, drawing from a range of experienced professionals from around the world. Our upcoming volume on strategic international partnerships will be co-edited by Clare Banks (IIE), Daniel Obst (IIE), Nina Lemmens (DAAD), and Kirsten Habbich (DAAD), and include chapters by some of the foremost practitioners in the field. 

The upcoming volume will draw from the expertise of professionals from around the world to discuss new trends, models, and best practices surrounding strategic partnership building. The publication will seek to answer the question: "what makes a partnership strategic?" and it will tackle a range of related topics in practical, experience-based articles. With strategic international partnerships seemingly on the rise, Global Perspectives on Strategic International Partnerships will explore how these partnerships are being developed and sustained from a range of viewpoints, delving into topics such as funding, administration, strategy building, engaging faculty, and evaluating strategic partnerships. Specifically, the book will address the following key areas:

  • Innovative Models in Strategic International Partnerships
  • Strategy-building Techniques
  • Administering Strategic International Partnerships
  • Engaging Faculty in Partnership Building 
  • Funding Models
  • Evaluating Strategic International Partnerships
  • Cross-Cultural Considerations
  • Partnership Building and International Development
  • Beyond the Initial Partnership: Expanding or Ending Partnerships

To be considered for a chapter in the book, we invite you to submit a 250-word abstract by December 15, 2014. We aim to include chapters that showcase diverse institutional, cultural, and geographic perspectives. Co-authored chapters from multiple country perspectives are especially welcome. If your abstract is selected, the deadline to submit a full chapter of 4,000 to 6,000 words (including charts and tables) will be February 20, 2015. Submissions must be original work (i.e., previously unpublished in any format).
