    Globalization and Change in Higher Education: The Political Economy of Policy Reform in Europe (2017) - - Given the reality of globalization, international cooperation is more important than ever. Internationalization is ultimately the recognition of academic qualifications across countries alongside opportunities for the mobility of graduates and researchers. Today the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) includes 49 countries. The history, ideas, and institutions that frame our understanding of higher education are set out in my book, which provides a historical institutional theoretical perspective on change. This book provides an in-depth analysis of the process of change in the Iberian countries Portugal and Spain. There are economic, political, and social explanations for the policy reforms that have taken place Europe since the Bologna Process launched on June 19, 1999 in the historic university city of Bologna, Italy. Today's internationalization of higher education is a response to the pressures of globalization.
