QS BRICS University Rankings 2018 Announced. University of Delhi tops traditional universities from India.

Speaking on the occasion, the President said that the University of Delhi is in many ways the University of India. Every state and region of our country is represented here. Each year thousands of eager young boys and girls travel to Delhi and apply to the University of Delhi or its affiliated colleges.

“Graduating from the University of Delhi has given you a firm foundation.” “It has empowered you to achieve more and aim higher as you walk into the world outside,” the President told the new graduates.

London, November 23, 2017 — Over 300 universities from India, China, Russia, South Africa and Brazil have been observed and graded for the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) ranking, one of the global prestigious rankings.

China occupies seven of the top 10 positions in BRICS, while its Tsinghua University, Peking University, and Fudan University get the top three ranks with the country.

Unsurprisingly, China is the most represented country in this year’s ranking, followed by Russia. By contrast, only 12 South Africa universities are included, the highest-ranked of these being the University of Cape Town in 19th place - a fall of five places since last year.

As with the top 10, there is little movement in the top 50, with only four universities breaking in since last time. Those institutions are: National Research University - Higher School of Economics, Tomsk Polytechnic University (both based in Russia), Pontificia Universidade Católica de São Paulo and Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (both Brazil).

From India, the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay has secured ninth rank followed by IISc, Bangalore (10), IIT Delhi (15) and IIT Madras (18).

Among India’s traditional universities, University of Delhi is at the top position within the country, followed by University of Calcutta.

In India, the QS University Ranking BRICS 2018 edition was unveiled today at an event in New Delhi by Professor (Dr.) V.S. Chauhan, Chairman, University Grants Commission (UGC).

“Role of ranking in terms of students getting to know about the institutions can’t be negated, but also sometimes overplayed. Rankings are relevant for institutions and most importantly because of the rankings what happened in India is that institutions have started to look at themselves,” said Dr. Chauhan.

“Indian education has expanded and we are trying to change a lot of regulations which are made long ago. In this there is space for rankings and the government is also realising this that the universities are a matter of prestige for the country,” he added.

Chauhan, while noting that the country is at a very early stage of its universities coming of age, said, “We will celebrate that day when of 350 universities 150 of them will be Indian institutions in the BRICS rankings.”

Based on eight performance indicators, namely academic reputation, employer reputation, proportion of staff with a PhD, faculty/student ratio, research publications, citation rates, proportion of international faculty, and proportion of international students, the ranking provides insights into the relative strengths and weaknesses of leading institutions in the five countries.

‘Discrimination against one is discrimination against all,’ says UNESCO on Day for Tolerance

Unesco, Paris

16 November 2017 - Marking the International Day for Tolerance, the head of the United Nations cultural agency underscored how tolerance must be nurtured to celebrate the diversity that makes us strong and the values that bring us together.

“Tolerance is respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world’s cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human,” said Audrey Azoulay, the newly-appointed Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), in her message on the International Day.

“Discrimination against one is discrimination against all,” she continued.

Ms. Azoulay pointed out that as globalization is accelerating across the world, societies are undergoing deep transformations, which open vast opportunities for dialogue and exchange as well as raise new challenges - sharpened by inequality and poverty, enduring conflicts and movements of people.

“We see today the rise of exclusive politics and discourses of division. We see diversity being rejected as a source of weakness,” she said.

Ms. Azoulay maintained that fuelled by ignorance and sometimes hatred, myths of “pure” lore cultures are being gloried while scapegoating and repressing people.

Also citing “barbaric terrorist attacks designed to weaken the fabric of ‘living together,’” she spotlighted the need that tolerance be more than the indifferent, passive acceptance of others.

“Tolerance must be seen as an act of liberation, whereby the differences of others are accepted as the same as our own,” stressed Ms. Azoulay.

The UN official said that that meant respecting the diversity of humanity on the basis of human rights; reaching out to others with dialogue; and standing up to all forms of racism, hatred and discrimination.

Noting that all cultures are different, she emphasized that “humanity is a single community, sharing values, a past and future.”

“There are seven billion ways of ‘being human,’ but we stand together as members of the same family, all different, all equally seeking respect for rights and dignity,” she underscored.

Ms. Azoulay termed tolerance “a struggle for peace” that calls for new policies that respect diversity and pluralism on the basis of human rights.

“Most of all,” she added, “this calls on each of us, women and men across the world, to act for tolerance in our own lives, in seeking to understand others, in rejecting all racism and hatred, including anti-Semitism.”

The UNESCO chief said its role is “to deepen the binds of a single humanity, through understanding, dialogue and knowledge,” which is why the UN agency defends humanity’s cultural diversity and heritage from pillaging and attacks.

“This is why we seek to prevent violent extremism through education, freedom of expression and media literacy, to empower young women and men. This is why we work to strengthen dialogue between cultures and religions, spearheading the International Decade for the Rapprochement of Cultures,” she said, adding that it was also why “UNESCO’s International Coalition of Inclusive and Sustainable Cities works to fight racism, discrimination, xenophobia and exclusion.”

Paris, France, 14 November 2017 — UNESCO Member States today approved continuation of the preparation of UNESCO’s Global Convention on the Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications.

The Convention would provide a global framework of universal principles and rules for the recognition of higher education titles, degrees, diplomas, and certificates.

The General Conference reaffirmed that the global convention will enhance international cooperation in higher education and will be a significant step forward towards global academic mobility and trust in higher education systems.

The Convention will be a major step forward for the rights of students to have their higher education qualifications assessed in a fair, transparent, and non-discriminatory manner by national competent authorities. It will also strengthen cooperation in higher education among member states and enhance trust in higher education systems by ensuring quality in education in line with the Sustainable Development Goals.

Since its creation, UNESCO has served as a global platform for discussion on the recognition of higher education qualifications and the promotion of academic mobility.

Global academic mobility is sharply on the increase with the overall population of mobile students doubling since 2002. Today more than 4 million students study outside their home country and it is estimated that by 2020 around 8 million students will be studying abroad.

This significant growth in mobile tertiary students calls for a global regulatory framework for the recognition of higher education qualifications. This framework will reduce the obstacles faced by students, teachers, researchers and job-seekers within and outside their countries of origin.

The General Conference of UNESCO has appointed Audrey Azoulay (France) to the post of Director-General of the Organization. Ms Azoulay was nominated on 13 October to take the place of outgoing Director-General Irina Bokova (Bulgaria) by UNESCO’s Executive Board.

The President of the 39th session of the General Conference Zohour Alaoui, congratulated the new Director-General at the end of a vote that endorsed the choice of the Executive Board.

“I now think of all the people I met in recent months, or had met in my various professional capacities, who have great expectations from UNESCO,” declared Ms Azoulay to the General Conference. “I think of UNESCO’s mandate, which is strikingly modern. I think of all of you who are aware of the difficulties of the Organization but who know that it is irreplaceable, that it is essential, in facing current global challenges and who aspire to the unity and serenity necessary to let it exercise its mandate to best effect.”

Ms Azoulay was France’s Minister of Culture and Communication from February 2016 to May 2017. She has occupied senior positions in France’s public broadcasting sector and then served as rapporteur to France’s public auditing authority, the Cour des comptes, and as a European Commission legislative expert on issues of culture and the media.

Ms Azoulay served France’s National Cinema Centre (CNC), first as Deputy Audiovisual Director, then as Director of Financial and Legal Affairs, and finally as Deputy Director-General. She is a graduate of the Ecole Nationale d’Administration and the Paris Institut d’études politiques. Ms Azoulay also holds a Masters degree in Business Administration from the University of Lancaster (UK).

Ms Azoulay is the 11th Director-General of UNESCO and the second woman to occupy this position. She will take office on 15 November.
