Nation-State, Diaspora and Comparative Education: The Place of Place in Comparative Education

  • Anthony R. Welch


This chapter uses the lens of place in comparative education, focusing on the significance of the diaspora, in particular knowledge diasporas. While the nation-state has been the traditional unit of analysis within comparative education, processes of globalisation mean that intellectual diasporas are unarguably becoming of greater significance. This change is all the more evident, in light of two key, and potentially contradictory, trends: first, the increasing mobility of knowledge workers, underpinned by developed-country migration schemes that target highly skilled migrants. A second related feature is the intensification of global communications technologies, which increasingly mean that such intellectual networks can be sustained without the need for (as much) geographical re-location.
