The Global Links Program: Building Pedagogy in Social Entrepreneurship for Positive Impact in Iraq
Dato-on, Mary Conway; Al-Charaakh, Amel
Journal of Learning in Higher Education, v9 n2 p71-81 Fall 2013
In this paper we offer a model that seeks to develop an entrepreneurial ecosystem as a portfolio approach to economic development through ongoing partnerships vs. one-off initiatives that may serve as a prototype for economic development in transitional economies. The model, developed by Tupperware Brands, Rollins College, and the U.S. Department of State Secretary of Global Women's Issues, known as the Global Links Program, connects partners in the United States and Iraq and rests on the principle that by improving the status of women through application of social entrepreneurship--in education and practice--nations will build a stronger, more self-sufficient economic system. To demonstrate how Global Links creates a self-sustaining system of economic entrepreneurship we focus on the educational initiatives and pedagogical development that will be required for the larger system to function efficiently and effectively. We conclude with propositions and a discussion of potential future research.
