Routledge Studies on Global Student Mobility Series [Interest Request Form]


Routledge Studies in Global Student Mobility offers a scholarly forum for original and innovative research which explores, explains, and increases understanding of issues and opportunities relating to international student mobility in K-12, higher education, and beyond. Consisting in peer-reviewed edited volumes, the series advances theoretical understanding and identifies best practices for educators and professionals involved in study abroad. Volumes explore trends, policy, services, the experiences and success of international students to promote interdisciplinary scholarship and critical dialogues between professionals, students, and academics working in a changing global context.

As an interdisciplinary scholarly venue, this book series welcomes new ideas and fresh perspectives relating to international student mobility, study abroad, exchange programs, student affairs from the US and around the world, and from a wide range of academic fields, including student affairs, international education, and cultural studies.
