Lee, Jenny; Jon, Jae-Eun; Byun, Kiyong
Journal of Studies in International Education, v21 n2 p136-155 May 2017
This research, based in South Korea, compares the experiences of international students from within and outside the Asian region and then examines Chinese international students' perceptions of discrimination. Utilizing the concept of neo-nationalism, survey findings revealed that Asian students reported greater difficulties and unfair treatment compared with students coming from Europe, North America, and other regions. The interviews further revealed anti-Chinese sentiments resulting in verbal aggression, challenges securing housing, discriminatory employment practices, and more.
