International Classroom Initiative Journal
The journal begins with legal research, cases, and commentary cultivated by Professor Deborah Wagnon while leading the International Classroom Initiative (ICI) to Belize from 2014 to 2016. Readers learn about the ongoing legal tension between Belize and Guatemala, trademark law and entrepreneurship, the government institutions involved in building Belize’s infrastructure, the current state of the entertainment industry in Belize, and the arts including Belizean music. In Part Two, select students who participated in the Belize ICI share their research, writing, and commentary, which serves to illuminate their personal insights, discoveries, and learnings.
Similar in style to a law review journal, but unique and targeted in subject matter, International Classroom Initiative Journal: Belize, Central America (2014-2016) Vol. 1 is well-suited for courses in entertainment industry, music business, intellectual property law, copyright law, international business, political science and international diplomacy. The journal is also an invaluable resource for university study abroad programs as it demonstrates the rich opportunities and experiences available to students exclusively through international study programs.
