Publication Date: 2014
Strongly interdisciplinary in its focus, this book empirically addresses four main research questions: who goes abroad, how students reconstruct their social network abroad, whether intra-European student mobility leads to an increased sense of European identity, and whether participating in a European exchange programme influences future migratory behaviour. The text systematically combines quantitative and qualitative data, and adopts a firm international comparative approach, focusing on the cases of Austria, Belgium, Italy, Norway, Poland and the United Kingdom. The empirical data originates from a large-scale online survey, as well as in-depth interviews and focus groups conducted with students in higher education.
