This book explores questions around the mobility of international students in the context of the global economy and an increasingly competitive trans-national education market. It also explores questions about the experience of international students principally from the Asia Pacific region at a time of increased global insecurity and growing hostile reactions to foreigners in the post September 11th era. This book emerges from empirical work from several research projects funded by the World Bank and several community projects to support international students. The focus is also on the way in which student mobility promotes growing connection within the Asia Pacific, as well as other regions, and provides the foundations for new notions of global citizenships.

"The OECD's Education at a Glance 2011 report has highlighted an interesting trend in so far as international student mobility is concerned. In absolute terms, the largest numbers of international students are from China, India and Korea. Asians account for 52% of all students studying abroad worldwide. This book, International Students in the Asia Pacific: Mobility, Risks and Global Optimism by Peter Kell and Gillian Vogl is an important book which analyses this important trend in the Asia Pacific region. This book makes a very significant contribution to our understanding of the dynamics of international student mobility in the Asia Pacific region, the risk associated with this mobility and its future scenario. Read together, the chapters which are well researched and written provide us with useful theoretical edge, convincing empirical evidence and important policy prescriptions."
