Cross-Border Student Flows and the Construction of International Law as a Transnational Legal Field
Find this publication at:
How does the global flow of students shape the production and diffusion of knowledge in international law as a transnational legal field? Education plays a crucial role in shaping individuals’ approaches and networks (incoming influences) and represents a meaningful form of soft power through which academics in some states are able to diffuse ideas, materials, and approaches across borders (outgoing spheres of influence). However, what are the patterns that reflect, and forces that shape, whether individuals from certain states are likely to cross borders to undertake tertiary studies? And, if they do undertake transnational study, where do they go? And how might these patterns influence the construction of transnational fields, such as international law?
