Political Science and International Relations Seminar : Governing Asian International students’ Mobility in Australia Other events...
Over the past two decades, Asian international mobility has literally changed the face of Australian campus, altered the socio-political dynamics of higher education, and posed many challenges for policy makers, managements, academics and students caught up in the torrents of globalization. This paper outlines the transformed higher education landscape, and contests against the ‘neoliberal cascade’ of students as customers and the marginalization of public good. It draws out the implications of the State regulatory regime’s attempts to redefine the public good of a university in market citizen terms at a time of Asia’s rise as a hub of knowledge production. The paper argues that in face of increased mobility, Australian universities have imposed uniformity in governing practices in which difference is sublimated and categorized along a developmental continuum. The paper notes what is unique about the Australian university system is its openness to the inflow of students and academics from the Global South but dominated by the hegemonic ideology of the Global North. The paper argues for a new ontology as well as a new epistemology that recognise the ‘internationalising’ effect of international students, and oblige a global cognitive justice and build an international constituency of the public good of international student mobility.
