Summary
 
As a result of transnational migration, many countries are becoming increasingly ethnoculturally diverse, creating both new opportunities and challenges for practices of adult education. This volume examines the changing nature of adult education in the age of increased transnational migration and:
 
• synthesize the latest research, policies, and practices in transnational migration and adult education,
 
• examines the larger historical and structural issues of race and gender in immigration and newer theories, such as diaspora studies, in relation to adult education, and
 
• provides examples and recommendations for enhancing socially just and inclusive adult education environments for newcomers.
 Transborder injustices and multiple dimensions of social justice permeate immigration dynamics and challenge adult educators to rethink social justice in a transnational age.
Key words
