Interculturality and Internationalization Approaches from Latin America
Main Article Content
The article aims to analyze the constructs of interculturality and internationalization based on a theoretical framework that is rooted in sociology and political economics (internationalization) and in sociology and decolonial studies (interculturality) and to understand the contributions of critical interculturality to the development of an alternative notion of educational internationalization. Methodologically, this work is constituted as a qualitative study, of the descriptive and exploratory type, using bibliographic sources. In the first and second part of the article, the main approaches and debates about interculturality internationalization of higher education that take place in Latin America, are discussed. In a third part, these two approaches are analyzed in dialogue, emphasizing similarities between them. Finally, the main contributions of critical interculturality to the development of an alternative process of educational internationalization are presented, highlighting the importance of prioritizing inclusion, of establishing relationships under conditions of equity and an expanded epistemic field.
