About this book

Based on narrative interviews with international students including egocentric network maps, this book explores international students’ role in the contexts they live in and how transnational spaces and internationality are (co-)created and defined in the students’ relationships. It offers insights into how students’ beings and belongings are intersected by connections to various places. These insights are an invitation to develop new strategies for internationalisation within higher education institutions by taking into consideration the students’ existing transnational networks.
