Beginning with a brief history and account of the philosophy underlying education for international understanding, this paper examines why education for international understanding (EIU) is central to the mission of both UNESCO and higher education institutions. It argues that EIU has much to contribute to the revitalisation of higher education, and that higher education has much to contribute to the development of EIU. An analysis of examples of good practice in higher education precedes a set of suggestions as to the strategies that might be employed to mainstream EIU in higher education.
