A proposed code of conduct for institutions that host international students: Opinion


In a recent opinion article for University World News, Fay Patel asserts that higher education—both public and private institutions—must reflect deeply on and take accountability for “the negative impact their environments have on international students.” Patel points to the many issues that international students must contend with in countries such as Canada, including a lack of housing or work and exploitation by supervisors. The author calls for an international code of conduct for international student safety and wellbeing, which would have host institutions guarantee housing and work placements, take responsibility for student safety and health during their stay in the host country, and modify payment policies based on EDI principles.
