As the major convening higher education associations in our respective countries, our organisations work together to support and promote international collaboration.

However, we recognise that such collaborations may carry a degree of risk, and sometimes raise legitimate national security considerations.

We are committed to engaging with and responding to such concerns on behalf of, and in concert with, our member institutions.

Our organisations are working together to better understand how to address these challenges, while remaining committed to helping our member institutions to realise the opportunities related to internationalisation.

This statement sets out how we plan to work together towards this aim.
