Vicheth Sen Higher Education and Civic Engagement in Cambodia articulating citizenship – civic education and student politics in southeastern china 1912–1940
Master's Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Pedagogy - Miscellaneous Topics, grade: A, Simon Fraser University , language: English, abstract: In a democratic country, in particular a country in the process of being democratized, high levels of civic engagement from the public are seen as necessary factors to sustain the principles and livelihood of democracy. In the meantime, education, especially higher education, plays a very significant role in promoting citizenship and civic activism. This study tries to identify the levels of civic engagement among students at the Royal University of Phnom Penh and to investigate whether higher education has any significant part in fostering civic engagement among the students. To this end, 200 senior students at the Royal University of Phnom Penh, Cambodia's oldest and largest public university, were surveyed. In the questionnaire, three main categories of civic engagement were used: (a) civic activities, (b) electoral activities and (c) activities for political voice. Results indicate that the students were engaged in only a few activities, but not many others. However, based on the results, the students showed high perceptions about civic activities and high attentiveness to politics and government. What is interesting, however, is that (higher) education and family-two fundamental social institutions-seem to have no significant roles to play in building civically engaged citizens. The findings appear to reflect the curr...

Creating Socially Responsible Citizens. Cases from the Asia-Pacific Region articulating citizenship – civic education and student politics in southeastern china 1912–1940
This book originates from a collaborative research initiative to examine how various societies in the Asia-Pacific Region construct moral and civic education, and to what extent these systems achieve thedemocratic objective of creating socially responsible citizens. In many western societies there is at least arhetorical tendency to separate the moral and civic dimensions of citizenship education, and in some casesto exclude the moral dimension from the discourse of preparing citizens.However, as cross-societal dialogues and research about citizenship education have increased in the pasttwo decades, scholars have identified differences in the emphasis put on the moral dimension of citizenshipeducation across the Asia-Pacific region. In many predominantly Confucian, Islamic and Buddhistsocieties, for example, the emphasis on the moral dimension of citizenship education is explicit, and insome cases, central.While awareness of a divide, or perhaps more appropriately a continuum in the role of moral versus civic education in democratic societies has beenrecognized for some time, to our knowledge this book marks the first effort of this scope to address the issue of the moral/civic divide in citizenshipeducation. Thus, through a cross-cultural dialogue across societies in the Asia-Pacific Region, this book addresses the issue of whether elements ofboth civic and moral education can be effectively joined to create a "socially responsible" citizen.

Lives in Translation: Sikh Youth as British Citizens articulating citizenship – civic education and student politics in southeastern china 1912–1940
In "Lives in Translation", Kathleen Hall investigates the cultural politics of immigration and citizenship, education and identity-formation among Sikh youth whose parents migrated to England from India and East Africa. Legally British, these young people encounter race as a barrier to becoming truly "English." Hall breaks with conventional ethnographies about immigrant groups by placing this paradox of modern citizenship at the center of her study, considering Sikh immigration within a broader analysis of the making of a multiracial postcolonial British nation. The postwar British public sphere has been a contested terrain on which the politics of cultural pluralism and of social incorporation have configured the possibilities and the limitations of citizenship and national belonging. Hall's rich ethnographic account directs attention to the shifting fields of power and cultural politics in the public sphere, where collective identities, social statuses, and cultural subjectivities are produced in law and policy, education and the media, as well as in families, peer groups, ethnic networks, and religious organizations. Hall uses a blend of interviews, fieldwork, and archival research to challenge the assimilationist narrative of the traditional immigration myth, demonstrating how migrant people come to know themselves and others through contradictory experiences of social conflict and solidarity across different social fields within the public sphere. "Lives in Translation" ...

This will be of interest to all those who value quality higher education no matter what their role.
