What makes a good global citizen…

Lewin, R. The Handbook of Practice and Research in Study Abroad. Higher Education and the Quest for Global Citizenship. Routledge, 2009. IBSN: 978-0-415-99161-2. Pages: 608.

If we are all becoming global citizens, what are then our civic responsibilities? Colleges and universities across the United States have responded to this question by making the development of global citizens part of their core mission. A key strategy for realising this goal is to study abroad. The Handbook of Practice and Research in Study Abroad is a comprehensive survey of the field. Each chapter conveys an enthusiasm for studying abroad alongside a critical assessment of the most up-to-date research, theory and practice. This volume brings together expert academics, senior administrators, practitioners of study abroad, and policy makers from across the US, Canada and other parts of the world.
