International student mobility to and from the Middle East, theorizing public, institutional, and self-constructions of cross-border students, edited by Aneta Hayes and Sally Findlow

"This volume investigates how international students in and from the Middle East are constructed by nations, institutions, other students, and themselves. Making a valuable contribution to understanding the nuances and complexities of educational politics and priorities affecting these constructions, the text considers the broader impacts of discourse on internationalization. Offering a unique combination of critical analysis of educational policies combined with empirical contributions through authors' own research, chapters highlight intersections between politics, the internationalization of higher education, and the construction of mobile learners. Emphasizing variation and nuance in the internationalization of policies in the Gulf Cooperation Countries, Syria, Israel, and Turkey, the volume offers a theoretical framework to help understand the political, educational, and ethical implications of emerging constructions of international students and their comparison across the Middle East. This timely volume will benefit researchers, academics, and educators with an interest in higher education, international and comparative education, as well as the Middle East more specifically. Those involved with educational education policy and politics, specifically related to the Middle East, will also benefit from this volume.
