Occasional Publication No. 2

Cosmopolitanism and Diversity: Concepts, Practices and Policies in Education Abroad.

Cosmopolitanism is a controversial term that has recently re-emerged in a wide range of social, political and cultural contexts.  For some commentators, it is associated primarily with new visions of global democracy; for others, it is a term which challenges conventional notions of belonging, identity and social engagement. These papers reveal a complex, contested set of ideas. Diversity is a term no less multiple in its meanings and connotations.  It is both a subject appropriate to learning outcomes and an ethical imperative. The natures of cosmopolitanism and diversity are, therefore, neither single nor simple. 

These essays present a collective awareness that simple solutions simply do not work and nor do they have simple impacts. Collectively, the essays demonstrate the fact that these topics need to be part of a revised study abroad agenda.
