Dr. Gerardo L. Blanco, Associate Professor of higher education at Boston College says, “Inequalities in Study Abroad and Student Mobility presents a remarkable set of voices that, taken together, provide a deep, critical, and valuable analysis of some of the most pressing issues for international higher education. The contributions that Bista and Kommers have brought together are well positioned to lead the way toward a new internationalization that is guided by values and principles.”

Dr. Ravi Ammigan, Associate Deputy Provost at the University of Delaware, USA adds, “This book serves as an important resource for international educators and practitioners at a critical time when institutions are grappling with inequality issues in Study Abroad and student mobility. It offers both practical and research-driven insights that can guide institutional policy and practice in promoting diversity, empathy, and inclusive internationalization on campus.”
