About this book

In an increasingly globalised educational landscape, this book examines whether the principle of educational equality can be applied across nation state borders. Exploring the tension between the  theory of educational equality and the reality that most educational institutions are rooted in local communities and national frameworks, the author thus probes the consequences for institutions, individuals and communities as the number of international students grows exponentially. A topic that has previously received limited attention, the author draws upon theoretical literature and an empirical study of how universities in the United Kingdom conceptualise and promote principles of educational equality for international as compared with home students. This pioneering work will be interest and value to students and scholars of international education, international students, educational equality and globalisation, as well as practitioners and policy makers.

Reviews

“Tannock should be commended; over the length of the book his analysis throws light on the enormity and the complexity of an important and underdeveloped area of internationalization – social justice for international students. … the book should be viewed as an invitation to identify, problematise, monitor and debate issues of educational equality on a global scale. The book will appeal to a wide audience of academics, policy-makers and administrators; I expect many will take up the invitation.” (Annette Bamberger, Comparative Education, January, 2019)​
