ABSTRACT. As the head of my university’s new International Justice program, I am well placed to speak about the trials and tribulations of teaching students about global politics. Our program draws in Sociology, Justice Studies, and Political Science students. The overarching goal is to make students aware of international issues ranging from genocide and terrorism to international migration and global institutions through the lens of social justice. The social justice lens is particularly effective because it provides a reason for exploring global issues. These issues are not blood- lessly described in my courses with the hopes of extracting causal variables. Instead international issues are framed as issues of justice and students grapple with these issues on the grounds of morality and fairness. pp. 38–46

Keywords: social justice, activism, community learning, Justice Studies, internationalizing pedagogy
