Student Mobility Roundtable Report 2019

Asia-Informed Student Mobility in the Indo-Pacific Era: Case Studies from Japan

Japan is one of the most popular destinations for New Colombo Plan scholars, and the report focusses on case studies of student mobility between Japan and Australia, highlighting their relevance for mobility between Australia and its regional neighbours more broadly.
