Vulnerability and resilience in a mobile world: The case of international students

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleOtherpeer-review


In a 2015 study, I interviewed 150 key informers including international student support staff and international students across the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia in relation to the issue of safety from crime (Forbes-Mewett et al., 2015). In relation to food security, the 2019 study presented a case of a student who communicated regularly with her mother at meal times via mobile phone text message to ask and receive cooking instructions. The mental health of Singaporean students was explored to find that this group, over a period of time, shifted from perceiving mental health issues as a taboo subject to a level of acceptance that they are a part of everyday life for many people (Gan & Forbes-Mewett, 2019).
