About this book

This book offers both a theoretical and empirical examination of elite education, at all stages from the early years to university level. The book explores the various manifestations of internationalisation of education; the implications of these for national education systems; the formation and re-articulation of elite forms of education locally and globally; and how these facilitate the reproduction or disruption of processes of inequality.  The collection critically considers these questions by drawing on contributions from around the world, and focuses on how internationalisation processes shape the various stages of the education system – from early years settings to higher education – in oftentimes quite different ways. At the same time, by engaging with the issues through a range of theoretical lenses, the book invites readers to consider in greater depth the various ways we can come to understand how processes of internationalisation are both embedding but also at times destabilising the formation and purpose of elite education provision and potentially the configuration of elite groups themselves.  The book will be relevant to academics, researchers, students, policymakers and educators working in or on the field of ‘education’ across the world.

Reviews

“Elite Education and Internationalisation is a timely and stimulating contribution to our understanding of global trends in educational policy, institutional competition and mobility patterns, as well as the education, training and recruitment of our future elites. Claire Maxwell and her colleagues present rich data and theoretically informed interpretations on changes in educational settings, trajectories and identities of elites, and how these are simultaneously reconfiguring entrenched social inequalities.” (Agnès van Zanten, Professor of Sociology, Sciences-Po, France, and co-editor of Elites, Privilege and Excellence – World Yearbook of Education 2015)

“Elite institutions of education around the world now operate within an increasingly transnational space. This volume brings together a number of highly insightful and thought-provoking papers to show how such institutions utilize a range of internationalization strategies to further display and reaffirm their social distinction and prestige.” (Fazal Rizvi, Professor of Global Studies in Education, University of Melbourne, Australia)
