Le role de la langue roumaine dans le processus d’internationalisation de l’enseignement superieur roumain

European flags.

The aim of this article is to examine the role of the Romanian language in relation to the discourse and processes of internationalization and globalization in the context of Romanian higher education system. More precisely, through this research project we analyze the way in which the Romanian language can be used as a tool through which the internationalization process accomplishes one of its goals, namely the promotion of the Romanian culture and civilization and the preservation of the country-specific. The approach of this subject exceeds the nationalist discourse and the cleavage unity-diversity, and uses instead the unity in diversity approach. The results of this project showed the potential that the Romanian language has in order to be successfully included in the process of internationalization of higher education and opens the door to a more extensive research aiming at identifying new ways of using it.
