This chapter provides an overview of the reasons that justify the need for additional and more systematic research of transnational education (TNE) and highlights the value of this book towards this. The authors discuss the current and future trends that shape a new reality in the global higher education in which TNE is expected to play a major role. Based on these general trends, the authors explain why higher education leaders should strive to develop and apply evidence-based strategies. This chapter concludes with a brief outline of the organisation of this book and the content of each chapter.
