This chapter introduces the subject and describes the central purpose of the book as well as the research design and methods used. It begins with a ‘morality tale’ based on regulatory experiences in New Zealand, involving New Zealand politicians and policy makers, the Chinese Government, and international students, mainly from China but more generally from Asia, studying and contemplating study in New Zealand. This tale is instructive and sets the scene for the remainder of the book by prescribing through a case study the importance of regulation to international student welfare. The remainder of the chapter provides the theoretical and policy background to the regulation of international student welfare.
