Report: Thinking higher and beyond: perspectives on the futures of higher education to 2050 (2021)


Published in English, French and Spanish, the report presents findings from consultations organized by UNESCO IESALC with 25 higher education experts based around the world who have extensive experience in teaching, researching, and/or enacting higher education. It also questions common assumptions about higher education and its contributions, creating a bold series of possibilities for different –and better– futures for higher education for all.

The report is the first phase of a multi-phased project on the Futures of Higher Education undertaken by UNESCO IESALC during 2021. The project, conducted within UNESCO’s Futures of Education flagship initiative, aims to “rethink education and shape the future.”
