Japan’s higher educational environment has become progressively globalized. The number of international students has been steadily growing and in the university classrooms, students and teachers gather from almost all corners of the globe. In order to meet educational needs of both Japanese and foreign students, a globalized classroom necessitates different, more diversified pedagogical approaches. In the present article, I describe a model to teach about modern international conflicts in a multicultural teaching environment and present my personal experience in the application of the model when introducing undergraduate students at Josai University’s(JU) Faculty of Contemporary Policy Studies to the Yugoslav civil war during the 1990s.
