Who should take moral and ethical responsibility for the world's critical issues? What obligations do individuals and multinational firms have to the rest of the world, and whose cultural values must they consider? How do you empower your students to construct their own perspectives on global concerns such as human rights, global warming, corporate social responsibility, and security against terrorism? Offering a participatory approach to teaching ethics in global politics, this book compiles classroom-tested exercises for use in courses related to world affairs. It guides instructors through the steps of active learning and offers issues-based modules as templates for classroom instruction. Each module provides background information about issues and activities, step-by-step directions, photocopy-ready exercises for students, and post-exercise debriefing with discussion questions. With this sourcebook, educators will powerfully connect their students to issues that transcend their immediate cultures and experiences.
Aiming beyond passive comprehension, the exercises prompt students to define their own ethical compasses and foster the cultural awareness and communication skills necessary to navigate a diverse world.
