About the Authors
  • Policy makers, advocates and scholars have long concentrated on the importance of equal access to primary and secondary education as a foundation for a democratic and just society. Despite the growing importance of higher and specialist education in an increasingly technological and skill-focused global market, tertiary education has attracted much less attention. And yet, universities and colleges are epicentres of egregious disparities in access, which impinge on traditionally marginalized communities, such as racial minorities, migrants, indigenous populations, and people with disabilities. By drawing attention to this issue and assembling first-rate material from scholars and policy makers across the globe, this book performs an invaluable service for those interested in understanding and fighting a highly significant violation of educational opportunity and social justice.

    • Outlines the impacts of educational disadvantage, normally reserved for primary and secondary education
    • Engages with different theoretical and analytical perspectives, affording the reader a broad survey of a complex and diverse field
    • Offers critical perspectives to the challenge of enabling access to higher education for the following three groups of marginalized populations: stigmatized citizen groups, refugees, and migrants
