Education, mobility and migration; people, ideas and resources - BAICE Conference 2012
This international conference will encourage the sharing of interdisciplinary understandings of the opportunities, barriers and challenges in formal and informal education that are associated with the migration and movement of people, ideas and resources.

The focus will be on exploring theories, policies, practices, experiences and the interrelationship between them.
