Publications: New guide for ethical mobility
Robert Gough (Western University), Dr. Pamela Roy (Consultancy for Global Higher Education) and Farzana Karim-Haji (The Aga Khan University) have collaborated on a new guide for developing ethical student mobility programs that considers the interests, goals, priorities, and needs of the student, the program, the institution, and most importantly, the host partner.
A Holistic Model for Ethical Mobility Programs further develops the concepts explored in their earlier work, Building Ethical Global Engagement with Host Communities: North-South Collaborations for Mutual Learning and Benefit, which covered topics such as core ethical dilemmas, standards of practice, critical self-reflexivity and reflexive practice, comprehensive pre-departure preparation, and how to develop ethical partnerships.
The six critical components of this model include:
- Ethically engaged partner relationship
- Ethics of governance: led from the ground
- Co-develop pre-departure orientation and materials
- Ongoing critical and ethical co-engagement and co-learning
- Ethical branding and communication
- Co-assessment, co-evaluation, and co-learning
