Wood, E. (2018) STEKA Dialogues [conference presentation]. In: Public Sociology Colloquium, 7 November 2018, Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh (Unpublished).
Critical views of voluntourism and white saviour complex are widespread, but marginalised voices are missing from the debate. This presentation looks at a project co-produced with vulnerable young people in Malawi to develop a new model of dignified voluntourism which counters accusations of poverty tourism, and white saviourism. It aims to design a respectful two way approach, developed through dialogue between marginalised young people in Malawi and Scottish school pupils, which will enable the Malawians to earn a sustainable income and the Scots to develop new and profound knowledge to share with wider audiences.
