HURRAHS!!!

A new book on International Education as Public Policy in Canada is now available from McGill-Queen’s University Press. Edited by Merli Tamtik, Roopa Desai Trilokekor and Glen Jones, this book “provides a comprehensive analysis of international education policy in Canada, tracing the complex history of when, how, and why it emerged as a policy area of strategic importance.” Another reviewer, Michael Owen of Brock University, wrote:  “Engaging a wide range of policy theories and taking historical, federal, regional/provincial, intersectoral, and multi-actor perspectives, International Education as Public Policy in Canada provides a comprehensive look at Canada’s broader policy context. The book is a serious advance in state-of-the-art research on Canadian international education, and the authors tell the Canadian story of international education as policy as a highly nuanced narrative.” The chapter related to Prince Edward Island was written by our colleague Dr. Tim Goddard. (Congratulations, Tim!)
