dc.description.abstractWhile the international dimension has long been a constitutive element of the academic environment, it has become more of a focus since the 1990s, both on the policy level and as a research subject. This chapter focuses on one particular aspect, namely the internationalisation of the academic labour market, a topic which does not seem to be at the core of most studies on internationalisation of higher education (Kim and Locke, “Transnational Academic Mobility and the Academic Profession in the UK”, 2009), although higher education institutions tend to rank it as the most important dimension of the overall process of internationalisation (Knight, Internationalization of Higher Education. Practices and Priorities: 2003 IAU Survey Report, 2003). How is the internationalisation of academic markets analysed? What does it reveal of the processes at play? At macro or meso levels, three main dimensions are investigated that attempt to picture the composition of academic staff, to question the brain circulation, or to identify the rules and practices higher education institutions apply when attracting and employing new collaborators. Focusing on the individual level, another three approaches to internationalisation question mobility patterns within academic careers, the effects on mobility on individual academic’s career and perception of the benefits of their mobility, as well as individual academic’s mobility strategies. Through these approaches, and beside the methodological problems posed by the measurement of mobility, research reveals a profound shift, from an individual management of international mobility to a collective, institutional, increasingly formalised and competitive process (Vabø, “Challenges of Internationalization for the Academic Profession in Norway”, 2007, p. 99–107).de_CH
