MONTOYA, Víctor. Double-headed dependence or autonomy? Latin America in the space of international student mobility. Rev. iberoam. educ. super [online]. 2021, vol.12, n.34, pp.156-175.  Epub Aug 30, 2021. ISSN 2007-2872.

This article proposes to analyze the Latin American international student mobility based on a theoretical framework that articulates the theory of dependence and Bourdieu’s concept of “field”. A factorial analysis of the correspondence of international student mobility is carried out to describe this space and then the position of Latin America is located and detailed. The main result is that the region constitutes a relatively autonomous pole that articulates North-South-South mobilities; however, the region is in a two-headed dependency relationship with Anglo-Saxon countries and Europe.

Keywords : student mobility; internationalization; statistical analysis; higher education; regionalization.
