provides a comprehensive assessment of the cross-border mobility of Chinese students and addresses the questions of who in China chooses to study overseas, why they want to do so, and what the impacts of this mobility are on China’s social stratification. In addition, it explores the challenges that these students face in terms of adaptation and identity formation once they have arrived in the destination country. Adopting a push-and-pull framework to analyze the data, it offers a unique and insightful resource.
