Such a poor judgement from people (the government) who should know better... UK universities need international students (and staff), just have a look at their income statements and you could understand their value... perhaps some people in the government should attend our classes!
The Home Office now wants to crack down on EU students after Brexit. So it is actually planning to cut the customer base - and so exports - of the world-leading... UK service sector. And for what? International students are not immigrants, but temporary residents on time-limited courses, also spending their money in the local economies whilst studying here.

It is fundamental to learn how to negotiate with your partners, this is why, as Director of the MBA at the University of Lincoln, I have activated a new module on Negotiation (one of the few in UK!) - for info check http://www.lincoln.ac.uk/home/course/mbalftmb/ or get in touch
It's a great honour to be part of the EU funded project NEIRE - New European Industrial Relations - great symposium today at #IACM2017 in Berlin - taking a comparative perspective on mediation in collective conflicts among 12 European countries ... and yes... we still consider the UK part of EU!
As a EU citizen who contributes to the UK economy, UK research leading role and UK education of future leaders, and as a researcher in negotiation, I have to say that I am highly disappointed by Theresa May proposal for the rights of EU citizens living in UK.
Again, she is proving not capable of making concessions to achieve a win-win solution, applying old fashioned tactics that proved to be inefficient... time to update her negotiation training!
Why didn't she simply recip...rocate the offer that came from the EU, unilaterally, about the rights of UK citizens?
I am not an expert in immigration policy, but the proposal seem to me utterly complex, expensive and inefficient. Causing many of us unnecessary stress and time waste, which in the end is going to harm the UK economy and the British people as most of us provide services to the UK that otherwise would not be covered.
The best way of concluding a conference is with a great party!
This year #EURAM2017 was really great. I had the chance to be a mentor for three wonderful and promising PhD students at the Doctoral Colloquium, they have a bright future in academia. Then at the conference I presented two of my papers, one on negotiations in family business and another on conflict management in Jordan. I participated in many interesting and lively discussions, I made new friends, caught up with... old ones and hopefully set the base for new collaborations. Thank you all, People makes Euram!
Conferences are always a great experience, looking forward to #EURAM2018 in Iceland!
Stay tuned for more news and opportunities from the #entrepreneurship SIG
Yesterday we concluded the EURAM 2017 Doctoral Colloquium, a great experience for PhD students and mentors to learn from each other how to navigate research and an academic career in general.
I had the opportunity to mentor three PhD students in entrepreneurship, they all have bright futures with interesting research questions and great personality.
I'd like to celebrate today Alex Alterskye, from the University of Lincoln, who was awarded with the Best Paper Award for his d...issertation. A great and solid work in search for the omnibus of entrepreneurship, and particularly, looking at understanding why certain regions are more disadvantaged in starting businesses.
Even if Alex is from my same institution, I just met him at the conference this year, I was impressed by his motivation and I am very proud to be part of the same institution as him. Prof Ted Fuller and Prof David Charles, Alex's supervisors, are doing a great job with him, and I am sure we will hear about his work the years to come.
Well done Alex!
We wait you at the EURAM conference next year! In the meantime, having closed the DC, we start today the EURAM conference. I am presenting (with co-authors) two works on Entrepreneurship and conflict management - stay tuned, more to come
As a European and as a scholar in negotiation, I can't let go how right this vignette could be!
Most of the success in negotiations comes from preparation before entering the negotiation, unity of intent in the negotiation team, prior experience and well designed strategies and a smart use of tactics... all those elements seem far to be met by the UK team... perhaps a tactic?
My personal opinion is that the EU is way more ready to negotiate than the UK, so far they have emp...loyed the best practices you could find around and made themselves a great case study on how to approach a negotiation. The UK instead seem having an old fashioned win-lose approach, highly competitive and often confused (and confusing). We will see how the situation unfolds.
Lots to learn from this huge negotiation affecting all our lives!
