About the Journal

JPHE is a fully online, open access journal dedicated to high quality research on, or related to, praxis within higher education teaching, learning, research, and activities aimed at impact on wider society (e.g., policy influence, activist research, or capacity building). In an era characterised by internationalisation, increasing accountability, strong ties between universities and national and regional economies, and imperatives concerning sustainable development, university communities are under great pressure to meet ever-increasing and often competing demands. The moral-political dimension of higher education and attention to universities’ civic responsibilities are arguably  sometimes forgotten in the daily struggle to meet  such demands.   This journal has been established with this  concern in mind, and seeks to promote continued debate and exploration of some of the key responsibilities of, and tensions pervading, higher education (see the JPHE’s editorial, Vol 1, Issue, 1) with a view to informing attempts to transform it in socially just and sustainable ways.

From ‘intercultural-washing’ to meaningful intercultural education: Revisiting higher education practice (pp. 1-16)
By Mélodine Sommier, Malgorzata Lahti, and Anssi Roiha

This is the first special issue that JPHE hosts—and could there be a more suitable forum for an issue dedicated to exploring and encouraging a critical dialogue around transformative intercultural communication teaching practices in higher education (HE)? What has led us to engage with the theme of making intercultural education meaningful is a shared observation that there seems to be an increasing disconnect between recent developments in intercultural communication theory and practice. With so much critique published over the years, we are perplexed as to why traditional notions of culture still prevail not only in mainstream intercultural communication research but also in institutional discourses in HE ...
