global_mobility_migration_teachers

The theme for this special volume, is the global mobility and migration of teachers.

This edition is conceived in a context where there is a growing shortage of teachers.

The articles contained herein offer insight and discussion into critical issues relating to the transnational movement of teachers, infringements by recruitment agencies and complicit governments intent on meeting their own needs and the construction of migrant teacher identities in a global space.

It is expected that the discourses contained in this collection will firstly, heighten global concern and interrogation and secondly, initiate tangible responses by individual countries to examine transnational teacher mobility and migration as a vector.
