The 2012 International Education Summit on the Occasion of the G8, which was organized and convened by the Institute of International Education, brought together 50 high-level delegates from 15 countries and the European Union. At the Summit, education leaders from G8 and other nations representing the major national exchange organizations and government agencies involved in international academic mobility engaged in a hands-on discussion of national priorities and educational cooperation among nations.

As a means of assisting educational policy-makers and practitioners in advancing their internationalization goals and their efforts to build partnerships and advance academic cooperation among nations, IIE has issued a detailed summary and key takeaways from each of the G8 sessions. In addition, each delegation submitted a formal statement,  "National Priorities in the Area of Promotion of Internationalization of Higher Education: Recent Developments and Future Trends." The numerous resources that stemmed from this Summit include:
