2016 was the year of the populist. This year – and for a number of years yet – countries across Europe and the Americas are grappling with the implications of this ‘populist uprising’. As the United Kingdom negotiates its exit from the European Union and the Trump Administration implements its agenda, many questions have arisen.

Drawing on the in-market expertise of ENZ’s Americas and Europe-based staff, this session will help make sense of fast-changing geopolitical dynamics and what it means for international educators in New Zealand.

It will explore such questions as:
• What impact is Brexit and Trump having on the international education industry?
• Have geopolitical developments opened the eyes of students in those regions to destinations like New Zealand?
• How should New Zealand international education providers best respond to these global changes?
