European perspectives on internationalization: sharing policies and good practices

The ancient Greeks and Romans used the Exedra (a semi circular portico/ room or outdoor area with seats) for holding philosophical conversations and tertulias, what the Portuguese call the friendly open minded discussions, while savouring coffee or wine. This journal takes its name from this inspirational concept of sharing ideas and vision for a better understanding of the intriguing phenomenon of life, peoples and the world. With this special issue of the Exedra Journal, a more cosmopolitan debate has been started into this publication, a virtual exedra, by gathering authors from various countries, professional expertise, fields of interest and action. The publication of this special issue has great institutional meaning. It signals and celebrates the quick evolution of internationalization at ESEC – in only a decade, it has succeeded in becoming a widely recognized school for the vivacity of its international actions…
