It examines the impact of international mobility not only on the learning process and outcomes for students but also on the academic human capital that crosses borders. As the international borders become more fluid and enable the ease of academic mobility, the result is the development of complexities in practices and the integration of cultural values. However, a significant phenomenon that runs through the chapters is the question of identity as both academics and students navigate different cultural identities irrespective of whether they work or study in their own country or across borders. The experience of multiple cultures through the classroom and educational programmes is facilitated by the diverse backgrounds of academics and national cultures, with a new set of identities emerging (Hack-Polay et al., 2021).
