    CIDE SEMINAR: MA and PhD Candidates - Emily Dunlop and Phirom Leng
    Ethnic Conflict in Burundian Schools & Partnerships in Contemp Cambodia
    Interethnic conflict in schools may be destructive, passive, and/or constructive. This case study examined how the Burundian formal education system incorporated ethnic difference and conflict into schools, throughout three time periods: the three pre-civil war independent republics, civil war (1993-2005), and post-civil war. It looked at education policy and planning documents from each time period and compared these documents to the remembered, lived experiences in schools, obtained from semi-structured interviews with 12 Burundian immigrants currently living in Canada. This study explores the issue of power relationships in international partnership programs between Cambodian universities and universities in France, the United States, Japan and South Korea, two decades after Cambodia began to be reintegrated into the regional and international communities in the early 1990s. In particular, it examines how far each of the four cases is characterized by mutuality. The cosmopolitan concept of mutuality - made up of equity, autonomy, solidarity and participation - is adopted as the theoretical framework. The study follows a qualitative case study research design, with interviews as the primary method of data collection.

    Corporal Punishment in the Classroom: An overview of world trends
    Deborah Parkes, MEd, U of Moncton
    Corporal Punishment in the Classroom: An overview of world trends with a special focus on India
    Abstract: School should be a place where children can get excited about learning. But in many classrooms in the world, children are hit by their teachers or even beaten. In a number of cases, children have even died. This presentation will look at corporal punishment trends in classrooms around the world with a special focus on India, where as many as two in three children report having been corporally punished at school. We will look at initiatives by child rights organizations and others to sensitize educators, and some of the barriers that make this work challenging.
    Deborah Parkes, a Moncton-based counsellor, recently returned from four months in India where she was researching the use of corporal punishment of child monks in Buddhist monasteries. She has an MA in counselling psychology and an MEd in educational psychology, both from McGill University. She is currently completing an MSW at Université de Moncton. In her previous 25-year career as a Montreal-based journalist, Deborah often wrote about mental health and abuse.

    CIDE Seminar: University Students' Perceptions of Citizenship
    Su Yan Pan, Honk Kong Inst of Ed, Visiting Scholar, OISE
    Although ideas about multileveled citizenship have been developed as abstract concepts in the literature and in policy discussions, very little is known about the views of university students. Recent studies in citizenship education and higher education have identified the need to conduct updated research with college students, because they are well positioned to develop and practice a new kind of citizenship that is featured by having shifting and multiple identities in a globalized world. There have been related studies in the North American and European contexts, but there has not been much research on the topic in Asia.
    This seminar shares findings from two on-going research projects that seek to understand the changing university-citizenship relationships in the comparative contexts of Hong Kong and Beijing. Drawn upon empirical data collected from questionnaire and interview surveys, this seminar details (1) how university students view their citizenship within local, national, and global contexts, and (2) in what ways social transitions and university education in Hong Kong / Beijing contribute to students' perceptions of citizenship, political awareness, and their underlying values. Audiences are welcome to share information on current developments in this area in Canada, American and European contexts.
