Transnational Student Mobility in Higher Education in Asia - An interdisciplinary study of young people's strategies and living conditions
This interdisciplinary project studies the transnational mobility of higher education within Asia by taking a perspective that situates individuals at the centre. It investigates young people’s strategies, experiences, and visions. The project has been carried out by six researchers from Lund University and Gothenburg University who represent various disciplines: Islamic studies, sociology, anthropology, and history. By viewing the subject ”from below” through the use of life stories as its research methodology, the group has approached transnational mobility in a unique way. The project also fills another gap, since inter-Asian education mobility has been given little attention. The project has contained sub studies based on fieldwork and data collection in India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Syria, Thailand, and Turkey.
