This chapter presents a picture of the implications of neoliberal re-structuring, framed as 'academic capitalism', to the erosion of the public role of the university and to understandings and practices of higher education. Drawing from experiences in Canada and Ireland, we offer insights from an international collaborative project on ethics and internationalisation in higher education, invoking its underlying principles of intelligibility, dissent and solidarity. Reflecting upon aspects of education and resistance, and emphasizing the dilemmas of power and complicity, we examine different possibilities for hopeful and ethical academic praxis in times of austerity and glocal crises.
