The Handbook of International Higher Education

Darla K. Deardorff, Hans de Wit, John D. Heyl, Tony Adams (2022). The Handbook of International Higher Education. Second edition, Stylus Publishing, LLC.


International higher education has evolved, in some respects dramatically, in the decade since publication of the first edition of the Handbook of International Higher Education. The new issues, trends, practices and priorities of research that evolved over this time have in some instances been transformed by one of the most dynamic and tumultuous periods in the history of international higher education, brought on by the pandemic, a re-emergence of nationalism, and the recognition of the power imbalances between the developed economies and the global south, and racial inequities within and across borders.

This new edition addresses the myriad of changes across all aspects of international education, each chapter addressing to the extent possible the reality of the present in which they were written and offering some insights for the future. While updating several chapters from the first edition, it also includes a preponderance of new chapters written by contributors representing wider and more diverse backgrounds.

This comprehensive new edition provides ideas, concepts, theories and practical ideas from around the world for those seeking to enhance the quality of the three core functions of higher education: teaching, research and service to society. It constitutes an essential resource for everyone involved in the delivery of international education and in determining its future direction.
