Dilemmas of Dissent: International Students' Protest, Melbourne 2006/2007
Rodan, Paul
Australian Universities' Review, v50 n2 p33-38 2008
International students in Australia are not usually identified with protest. However, a cohort of such students at one university campus was prepared to undertake robust public protest over alleged academic mistreatment in 2006/2007, eschewing conventional internal mechanisms for the resolution of such problems. Subsequent developments revealed much about government and media attitudes and the dilemmas posed for institutions in crafting an appropriate response.
