FAVERO, Altair Alberto  and  TREVISOL, Marcio Giusti. Higher Education and internationalization: actors and challenges. Sér.-Estud. [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.53, pp.35-60.  Epub May 12, 2020. ISSN 2318-1982.

The article discusses the internationalization of Higher Education from the actors who work in the field of educational policies. The investigative problem is characterized by the question: what are the meanings of internationalization from its actors? The goal is to present how the internationalization is treated by the actors who participate in the educational policy debate arena. The research is exploratory with documentary data collection. The sense of internationalization present in the documents evidences a strong tendency to value policies that guarantee the economic development, to the detriment of internationalization policies that value diplomacy and knowledge networks. Therefore, it is possible to infer that the internationalization policies present several facets and intentionalities deriving from the actors involved in the university field.

Keywords : internationalization; Higher Education; actors.
