International students and crime is of major international concern, impacting on lucrative international student markets, international relations, host countries reputations as tolerant and safe, and on the security of students and the public. While crimes against and by international students have attracted a deal of media attention and discussion internationally, there is little research that systematically describes, analyses and reflects on the phenomena. International Students and Crime analyses a spectrum of crime from petty theft to kidnapping and murder, presenting vital knowledge about international students as victims and perpetrators of crime in the US, the UK and Australia. It highlights the largely hidden phenomena of crimes against female international students and strategies students use to stay safe. Examining the different approaches to student safety in host countries, the book considers the ways in which governments, higher education providers and police approach and implement their responsibilities for international student safety.
