Australia: Situating Indigenous Student Mobility Within The Global Education Research Agenda
Sarah Prouta, and Angela Hill, 2012
In Australia, as in other global contexts, Indigenous education outcomes are well below those of their non-Indigenous counterparts. A more robust understanding of, and responsiveness to, Indigenous temporary mobilities is a critical step to redressing such educational inequalities. This paper draws together learnings from the papers in this special issue about the scale, volume, rationale and structural drivers of Indigenous mobilities in northern Australia, and how such knowledge can influence educational policy and practice. It also points to key issues that require further scholarly attention. The paper grapples with some of the methodological complexities of such work and concludes with a call for an expanded interdisciplinary research agenda around Indigenous student mobilities internationally.
