International Faculty in Higher Education: Comparative Perspectives on Recruitment, Integration, and Impact
In collaboration with the Boston College Center for International Higher Education (CIHE), the Center for Institutional Studies (HSE) is delighted to announce the forthcoming publication of
International Faculty in Higher Education
Comparative Perspectives on Recruitment, Integration, and Impact (Routledge, 2017).
International student mobility is a much-explored phenomenon. Much less widely researched or documented, however, is the international mobility experience of faculty. Yet, around the world—as many higher education institutions and systems seek to expand, innovate and/or internationalize—academic staff are on the move.
This book offers up a comparative examination of the international faculty experience in 11 different countries, in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas. The volume focuses on international faculty who are formally hired on a more permanent basis by host institutions, rather than those who are mobile via more short-term arrangements.
Of particular interest in the analysis are the national and regional regulations that relate to the status of foreign academics, the practices for attracting foreign scholars, and the evaluation of their productivity and effectiveness.
International Faculty in Higher Education contributes important insights in relation to our evolving understanding of the individual, institutional, and national/systemic experiences, and implications, of long-term faculty mobility in a global context.
