If you follow this blog, you’ll know the last blog post had some pretty interesting news articles on international volunteering. If you’re looking to do some more (and just as interesting) reading, I highly recommend reviewing these pieces of research (credit for the find goes to our Executive Director, Ms. Genevieve Brown).
Academic Literature of Volunteer Tourism
EcoClub.com reviewed a 2014 academic book on volunteer tourism, “Volunteer Tourism – Popular Humanitarianism in Neoliberal Times”. The review gives a thorough summary as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the book.
Stanford’s Principles of Ethical Service
Stanford has a list of principles for ethical service that are not unlike IVPA’s Principles and Practices and are great guide to review.
As always, we hope you enjoy the read!
