Attitudes Towards Policing in U.S. International Education
The pertinent and sensitive challenges of policing are concurrently global and local for many students, requiring study abroad leaders to consider student demographic and subjective position when choosing a study abroad location. Join us as we examine actual study abroad programs in London, Belfast, and Cape Town and show how an interdisciplinary focus on policing connects studies of peace and conflict, global citizenship, and social justice. We’ll also review how policing provides an insightful reflective learning opportunity whereby minority and majority demographic students can draw critical and nuanced parallels between policing in the UK, policing in South Africa, and policing in the U.S.
