The International Student as Student, Migrant and Victim: Changing Perceptions in a Vexed Area of Public Policy
Rodan, Paul
Australian Universities' Review, v51 n2 p27-31 2009
From the inception of post-Colombo Plan international education in Australia, three broad research emphases have been evident: the student as student, as migrant and most recently, as victim. The victim role plays easily into preconceived notions, helping to sustain an exploiter and exploited framework in which deeper issues remain unaddressed. This article raises some such questions, especially the role of casual work, and makes the case for greater acknowledgment of the complexities in this contentious area of public policy.
