This Handbook analyzes the origins, contributions, and interpretations of international education. The authors identify approaches to research that will enhance our knowledge and understanding of the field, and extend and even redraw it, on the basis of the research evidence presented. Key features includes a historical overview of the ways in which the term "international education" has been interpreted; the theoretical interpretation of international education in its current context; international education in practice: exploration of the issues in terms of students, curricula, pedagogies, and organizing formal institutions; and conceptual challenges for international education in the future.
