Transnational Migration and Education

Migration has been adopted by many countries as a strategy to compete for the most talented, skillful, and resourceful and to ameliorate aging populations and labour shortages. The past few decades have witnessed both an expansion and transformation of international migration flows. The resulting demographic, social and cultural changes have reconfigured the landscapes of education in the receiving societies.
Transnational Migration and Education aims to bring together international scholars with contributions from new and established scholars to explore the changing landscapes of education in the age of transnational migration. The series includes authored and edited collections offering multidisciplinary perspectives with a wide range of topics including:
• global and comparative analyses of migration
• the impact of migration on education and society
• processes of exclusion and inclusion in migration and education
• tensions between mobility, knowledge, and recognition
• intersections of race, class, gender, sexual orientation and education
• transnationalism, diaspora, and identity
• transnational migration and youth
• race and ethnic relations
• ethnicity, diversity and education

Please send book proposals to the series editors, Shibao Guo and Yan Guo, or assistant editor Evelien van der Veer.
