    CIDE SEMINAR: Can education counter religious extremism?
    Professor Ratna Ghosh, McGill University
    This talk will briefly discuss the context and significance of religious extremism in light of the Canadian government's current counter-terrorism strategy that neglects to mention the role education can play in preventing violence/terrorism, and in maintaining safety and harmony in society.

    How can education counter religious extremism and terrorism? We will clarify concepts and talk briefly about some possible causes which have been identified as leading some youth to engage in extremist behaviour. Although there is a significant increase in literature on fundamentalism, religious extremism, radicalization and terrorism, surprisingly very little attention has been paid to the role of education and schooling as they relate to these phenomena in North America. This talk will suggest some ways in which education can build resilient communities through critical citizenship education, media and religious literacy so as to challenge beliefs before they become radicalized.

    Exploring the Link between Visa and Immigration Policies and International Student Recruit
    Anital Gopal, PhD, Visiting Scholar, CIDEC/LHAE
    International student mobility has become an important policy issue in the internationalization of higher education. International students, particularly at the graduate level, are moving across borders in greater numbers. Concurrently, higher education institutions welcome the independent source of income from international student enrolment. Many countries rely on revenue from international student tuition to bolster their economies. Moreover, attracting international graduate students has also become a trend to produce designer immigrants on the path for "two-step migration", which means that they can qualify for permanent residency and then citizenship in their host study country upon obtaining their graduate degree (Hawthorne, 2012). However, this trend is changing in certain countries due to strict regulations around border security and anti-immigration sentiment. This seminar presents an overview of the literature on international student immigration policies and explores the link between higher education institutions' policies regarding international graduate student recruitment and national visa and immigration policies. This research will focus on macro level policies in four English speaking Western countries and will suggest ways in which new insights can be developed in the internationalization of higher education.
