This chapter focuses on the link between international education and the human security of international students. It briefly discusses the concept of human security and reviews the political economy of growth in the market for international education services. It discusses the status of international students in the global market, followed by a case study of students' security in Australia, stemming from a programme of 200 in-depth interviews with individuals studying onshore in that country. It argues that international education needs to be ‘re-normed’, principally through re-regulation for student security. It opines that this would more effectively cater for the rights of students to safety and social and economic inclusion in the host society.

Keywords:   international education, human security, international students, political economy, global market, case study, student's security, re-normed, rights of students
