"The editors have assembled a superb and significant compilation of chapters on one of the most critical topics in higher education: mobility and migration. The contributors offer an enlightened and provocative range of views and analyses that is sure to initiate much discussion in the higher education community. Covering both theoretical and case study analysis, the chapters bring into focus how this issue is played out in settings as diverse as Japan, China, Taiwan, Singapore and the United States, Australia, Korea, and regional settings such as Southeast Asia and Europe. This volume makes a significant contribution to the literature on mobility and migration and is another example of the excellent work being done by the IFE 2020 group at the East West Center." - President Toyoshi Satow, J.F.
