- Publisher's Summary
- Many national governments fund carefully selected foreign citizens to live, work, and study in their countries by creating exchange and mobility programmes. They often do this in the hope that mobility will improve international relations. Drawing on a wealth of research, International Education Programs and Political Influence questions whether mobility brings the kinds of benefits politicians have come to expect. It shows that the experiences of mobile scholars, the reflections of longstanding alumni and the expectations of senior administrators can differ quite significantly. The idea that hosting foreign visitors necessarily brings diplomatic influence may, in fact, be distracting us from the real benefits of educational mobility.
