UNESCO IESALC’s participation in #WHEC2022 | Round Table: Fireside chats on higher education and (inter)national development

18 May, 2022 hora: 10:15 am - 11:45 am

Within the framework of the UNESCO World Higher Education Conference 2022, UNESCO IESALC will take part in the Round Table: Fireside chats on higher education and (inter)national development at 10:15-11:45 (Spain time) on May 18, 2022.

Through a series of moderated and intimate conversations, this WHEC session will provide fresh perspectives on policy developments in higher education to consider how more opportunities can be created and how these can target those traditionally excluded from higher education. Taking in the role of both national and international actors, these fireside chats will provide three distinct perspectives on the crucial and current issues of higher education and (inter)national development. There will also be an opportunity for delegates to engage in discussion with the panelists.


Planning for more sustainable futures: The role of higher education in national post-pandemic recovery plans – Romeela Mohee, Higher Education Commissioner, Mauritius.

From financial burden to a world of opportunities: Rethinking the cost of higher education for students and governments – Fernando León García, President of CETYS University, Mexico; President of the International Association of University Presidents (IAUP).

Advancing higher education and national development in international perspective: The convening capacity of regional and international actors in higher education – Ethel Agnes Pascua-Valenzuela, Director, Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organisation.

Moderators: Victoria Galán-Muros, UNESCO IESALC’s Chief of Research and Analysis, and Abdoulaye Salifou, Regional Advisor for Higher Education and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) at UNESCO Regional office in Abuja, Nigeria.

Location: Fira Room 3
