CHALLENGES IN CREATING GLOBAL AWARNESS: An ethnographic account as a Global Volunteers intro-course facilitator

Victor Vico Stenderup

Studenteropgave: Masterprojekt

Abstrakt

Aided by ethnographic accounts, the paper aims at illuminating several challenges and critical moments the author has faced during his internship at the Danish NGO ActionAidDK. Through a postcolonial lens and drawing from critical pedagogies, the paper concludes that critical examinations of whiteness are important in volunteer tourism but equally challenging when conducted in a homogenic white space.
