This book offers a contemporary perspective on the mobility of academics across the globe with contributions by authors based in Australia, Germany, Ireland, Israel, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States. With a focus on the context for and experience of academic mobility in Africa, Australia, Europe, the Gulf and the United States, issues such as historical perspectives and contemporary reflections, the impact of English as the 'lingua franca' of academe in South Africa, the motivations and experiences of international academics working in the United Arab Emirates, the integration of foreign-born faculty within Israeli academia, academic mobility within the US, and, the legal status of academic mobility, this volume is both comprehensive and relevant.
