Advance Praise for Higher Education Challenges for Migrant and Refugee Students in a Global World

“Economic and political crises throughout the world have caused millions of people to seek refuge and better futures in other nations. Higher Education Challenges for Migrant and Refugee Students in a Global World is a thoughtful international understanding of many of the important limits and possibilities of higher education policies and practices for many of these people.”

Michael W. Apple, University of Wisconsin–Madison, USA

“Studies of international student mobility have, to date, tended to focus on the experiences and mobility patterns of the privileged. This is an important text that diverts our gaze instead to those who migrate under very different conditions—and the potentially significant impact higher education can have on the lives of refugees and other displaced persons. It draws on a wide range of material from various geographical contexts to explore commonalities and differences in the experiences of refugee students. The book will also be of interest to scholars of student migration, as well as those of global higher education policy and practice.”

Rachel Brooks, University of Surrey, UK

“This collection of essays offers a very valuable addition to emergent scholarship within the social sciences on education and migration/mobilities. The focus on displaced populations is especially needed. As the editors note, flows of refugees and asylum seekers are often comprised of large numbers of individuals of school age in need of education. This book offers some very useful perspectives on the implications of this for higher education in the contemporary world.”

Johanna L. Waters, University of Oxford, UK

Higher Education Challenges for Migrant and Refugee Students in a Global World is a very timely and important volume by renowned international scholars about the consequences of an undeclared world war on higher education systems around the world as millions of people are displaced because of brutal wars, ethnic cleansing, and massacres.”

Hasan Simsek, Istanbul Kültür University, Turkey

Higher Education Challenges for Migrant and Refugee Students in a Global World will walk you through theoretical and evidence-based perspectives of migrations and the most important policy questions. This book tells the experiences of different countries and national institutions that have been involved in refugee crises. In the retelling of individual stories, it will profoundly enrich your understanding of migrant and refugee student experiences.”

Melita Kovacevic, University of Zagreb, Croatia

“At a time when humanity is struggling to grasp the full implications of migration in the twenty-first century—a phenomenon that has both social and economic dimensions and impacts upon all economic sectors—this book provides useful insights into its consequences while at the same time drawing attention to the link between migrants and refugees and challenges in higher education (a key driver of sustainable development) in an effective yet sensitive manner.”

Anna Saiti, Harokopio University, Greece
