of value regarding an incomplete tomorrow,
a merely imagined project.
It took hundreds of years for the moral
imagination enshrined in the Declaration of
Independence to apply broadly to 300 million increasingly diverse citizens, and it is
still a project in process. This kind of continuous expansion of imagined community
is now the task at hand for global citizenship
and human rights advocates. As Jack Donnelly writes:
Human rights theories and documents
point beyond actual conditions
of existence-beyond the 'real' in
the sense of what has already been
realized-to the possible, which is
viewed as a deeper human moral
reality. Human rights are less about
the way people 'are' than about what
they might become. They are about
moral [emphasis in original] rather than
natural or juridical persons.2

Similarly, global citizenship education is centrally about engaging the moral
imagination to imagine a broader "we" and
then to envision what we might achieve together. Cultivating empathy and imagining
alternative possibilities is not so difficult to
do in individual classrooms. In respect to
migration in particular, a wealth of strong
literature such as Luis Alberto Urrea's The
Devil's Highway or Sonia Nazario's Enrique's Journey places readers in empathic
relationship with individuals whose lives are
otherwise often distant. Students are also
strongly influenced by short video and audio reporting, such as this New York Times
profile of the Missing Migrant Project3 or
NPR's recent series, borderland.4

Gauging Real Impact
But these kinds of empathy-inducing moves
are at the level of the individual classroom,
and even there faculty often shy away from

Teach About Asia
Education About Asia
Education About Asia is a unique and innovative magazine -
an important journal for international educators and professors
of education interested in international education, as well as an
invaluable source of information for students, scholars, libraries, and
those who have an interest in Asia.
Thematic issues on topics of particular
interest include Islam in Asia, marriage and
family in Asia, religion in Asia, youth culture,
economics and business in Asia, visual and
performing arts, and a special series on
Asia in world history.

expressing specific values commitments.
Rather, the prevailing assumption is that if
students are exposed to broader objective
knowledge and diversity of perspectives,
along with the tools of critical thinking,
they will come to see the importance of acceptance, inclusion, and ethics. Yet there is
little evidence supporting this assumption.
As Arum and Roksa show us in Academically Adrift, to a disconcerting extent the
effect of exposure to higher education might
be summed up as "negligible" (or as demonstrated by the control groups in most of
the studies that AAC&U looks at to discern
high-impact practices).
It is true that there is a growing evidence base demonstrating particular kinds
of efficaciousness for high-impact practices such as deliberately structured and
reflective international education, carefully
facilitated cross-cultural collaboration, service-learning and community engagement,
