‘Cosmoportism’ comes from ‘cosmoport' (see Cosmoport). It is my philosophy of international education or the internationalization of the curriculum in the global village, which s a spider’s web-like world.

This philosophy is based on the understanding of the logical and natural link between ‘university’ or 'UniverCity' and ‘globality.’ ‘UniverCity’ or an authentic university is and must be a universal or global city.
"COSMOPORTISM is a way of being, living, and acting in a world that has become a spider’s web-like place or a global village. That way must be based on a vested interest in, and commitment to worldwide world-ready learning and understanding" (Zekeh Gbotokuma, "Global Safari." Cambridge Scholars Publishing 2015: 224-225; 233- 265; and Gbotokuma 2010: 23-31).
