Working with Neighbours: University Partnerships for International Development.
Asking the question, "What might a good university international development project look like?" this book examines a number of university international development projects, encompassing foreign student intakes, student exchange programs, faculty research and teaching, extension education, and business and public service advisory projects. The first of five parts reviews perspectives on development and the principles and processes of international partnerships. The second, third, and fourth sections explore projects ranging from first-generation individual and short-term activities, to second-generation more structured international projects and their cycles, to third-generation open-ended projects and networks. Matrices provide contrasting frameworks, indicative of Northern and Southern perspectives and ideas are offered about how universities might generate additional benefits or reduce costs. Part 5 explores issues related to institutional management and capacity building. Appendices include: a copy of a 1991 statement concerning environmentally sustainable development issued by a gathering of university representatives in Halifax, Canada; a summary of the important facets of linkage; an abstract of ideas from the Centre for International Programs, University of Guelph (Ontario); the seven fundamental principles of the Red Cross and Red Crescent movements; an Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) survey on internationalization; and excerpts from AUCC's publication "UniWorld."
