1. Zhou, Zejun. "IB IS: International baccalaureate or international business in China’s international schools" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 53rd Annual Conference of the Comparative and International Education Society, Francis Marion Hotel, Charleston, South Carolina, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p303598_index.html>

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.

Abstract: The round table FD14 is sponsored by the Japan Association of International Relations, which is in fact called “Nihon Kokusai Seiji Gakkai” in Japanese. If this name is translated literally into English, it should be called the Japan Association of International Politics. This might not be surprising at all in the United States. However, in Japan, “International Politics” and “International Relations” are not necessarily interchangeable. “International Relations” has a more comprehensive meaning, containing “International Politics” as a branch among others such as “International Law” and “International Economics.” Though distinguishing the state of International Studies in Japan from that in the United States, this historical conditioned divergence has not been well explicated in English. The whole body of International Studies prior to the Second World War has been grasped as “an amalgamation of Law, History, and Economics in the international arena” to borrow from Professor Inoguchi (who was supposed to attend this round table, but actually could not). The various strands of International Studies, including those leading into International Politics and International Relations, are all conflated into this all-inclusive “amalgamation.” Therefore, in this paper, I will resolve this “amalgamation” into its originally individual strands as observed in the form of university subjects. Particularly, I will look into the curriculums of the University of Tokyo and Waseda Universities. The genealogical distinctiveness of International Politics and International Relations will appear in the process.

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.
