PPEdu Strategic Plan for Internationalization (PEI-PPEdu)
he Strategic Plan for Internationalization by PPEdu (PEI-PPEdu) understands internationalization not as isolated, episodic and self-focused actions, but as a process for integration and cooperation of international, intercultural and global spheres toward scientific, educational, technological and cultural advancement to produce knowledge, as well as to generate opportunity for professional academic training and social change.
For creating the PEI-PPEdu, the situational reality of the Program, the Strategic Plan for Internationalization of Research and Graduate Studies (PEI-PPG of UEL 2018-2022) and the strategic guidelines and debates on internationalization of research and Brazilian graduate studies undertaken by CAPES, CNPq, Area 38-CAPES, FORPRED, ANPED were taken into consideration. We also considered the results pointed out in the PPEdu's self-assessment process.
