Abstract: An increasing trend in international studies education is the ever-growing numbers of non-western students studying using English as the language of instruction. Part of this increase is accounted for by the growing number of students studying abroad for varying lengths of time in countries where English is the primary language of instruction. A second factor is the increasing number of institutions in non-western countries offering programs of study using English as the language of instruction, even when a different language is primarily spoken in the institution's host country. This can present a challenge to many western instructors both home and abroad, who are charged with covering sophisticated course content for students with a different cultural background and a more limited vocabulary than the students they are accustomed to teaching. This presentation focuses on the use of techniques such as scaffolding, multimedia usage, peer learning, and active learning strategies that enhance student retention and comprehension; as well as help close any comprehension gaps between non-western students and their more-fluent classmates. These techniques have been proven effective for instructors of western students of international studies and they are doubly effective in supporting the needs of non-western students. This presentation will draw on one professor's experience teaching at a Japanese university in three innovative programs that offer course content in international political economy using English as the language of instruction.

Abstract: This paper examines the future of international law and politics with the help of and from the perspective of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) report. A conceptualization of the “responsibility” in the report highlights particularly the international community as a proactive social community, a point which is analyzed with an analogy with domestic neighborhood watches. The analogy exposes the character of the international community in the R2P report as well as what would be required for the practical functioning of the responsibility to protect as outlined in the report. While some required international changes appear utopian, others have already taken place following historical trends. The R2P report seems to be in line with the centuries-old liberal international political project.

Abstract: Policy-making in the realm of information policy increasingly involves influence from non-state actors and foreign state actors. This paper presents some dynamics for understanding the sources of changes in information policy, particularly to understand the trans-national nature of these policies. These international policy dynamics include policy laundering, modeling, and forum-shifting. Upon describing these dynamics, this article contends that international relations, inter-governmental organizations, and the ability of civil society to participate at the international level will play increasing roles in national policy discourses.

Abstract: Both traditionally foreign-run and newly emerged Chinese-run international schools have grown rapidly in the 1990s to cater to the exploding international student population in metropolitan cities such as Beijing and Shanghai. To be as international as their foreign peers, Chinese-run international schools have imported International Baccalaureate programs (IB). This paper addresses two questions: Why Chinese-run international schools have imported the IB? How do they interpret the IB’s education for global-mindedness? To understand what drives Chinese international schools to adopt IB, this study first examines IB’s historical connection with international schools and employs two sets of comparisons: traditional international schools vs. Chinese-run international schools, Chinese-run international schools with and without IB. The study discusses how Chinese-run international schools interpret IB’s education for global-mindedness in their extra-curriculum activities and mission statements. The research suggests that Chinese schools’ financial and status interests might override educational interests in their international import and implementation. Finally, the study discusses theoretical implications of the international borrowing in Chinese educational setting.
