The Internationalization of tertiary institutions and the decolonization in higher education are one area that has grown interests in and to researchers, scholars, entities, organizations, and private companies. We live in times where the fourth industrial revolution and development goals permit such discussions and debates on issues that affect our agency. Exiting from the global south perspective, I understand that debates around internationalization and decolonization concern not only the global-south but also the global-north.
This workshop aims at stimulating debates around internationalization during decolonization, the production of knowledge transformation in the higher education sector, rankings, politics of location and institutions, sustainable higher education, and society, and including the othered for a sustainable social cohesion. However, the question is whether higher education institutions sustainably embrace such debates. How do universities activate capabilities and remove gatekeepers in ensuring sustainable internationalization and decolonization? How do universities promote social cohesion through internationalization and decolonization? There is a need to start debates to contribute to the discourse in higher education and the globe as both internationalization and decolonization are connected to globalization. 

Keywords: Internationalization and decolonization, sustainable higher education, Inclusive education, education for change, capabilities .
