What is the relationship between education and those seeking asylum or refuge? What is the impact of education being marginalized during conflict situations? Drawing on international research in numerous countries, including Thailand, North Korea, Lebenon, Africa, the USA and the UK, the contributors consider, conceptually and empirically, the provision of education to refugees and asylum seekers in their homeland or in host countries, analyzing the internal and external factors affecting educational provision during and after emergencies. Each chapter contains a summary of the key points and issues within the chapter to enable easy navigation, key contemporary questions to encourage you to actively engage with the material and an annotated list of suggested further reading to support you to take your exploration further. A companion website supports the text and provides updates and additional resources.

In the last five years, more child refugees have made perilous journeys into Europe than at any point since the Second World War. Once refugee children begin to establish their new lives, education becomes a priority. However, access to high-quality inclusive education can be challenging and is a social justice issue for schools, policymakers and for the research community. Underpinned by strong theoretical framings and based on socially just principles, this book provides a detailed exploration into this ethically charged, emotive and complex subject. Refugee Education offers an interdisciplinary perspective to critical debates and public discourse about the topic, contextualized by the voices of young refugees and those seeking to support them in and out of education. Shaped by practitioners, the book develops an inclusive model of education for refugee children based on the concepts of safety, belonging and success, and presents practical tools for planning and operationalizing the ethics of inclusive education. This book includes a wide range of case study examples which reveal the positive outcomes that are possible, given the right inputs. It is essential reading for teachers, senior leaders and policymakers as well as academic researchers in education, social policy, migration and refugee studies.

Sustained political and socioeconomic crises can potentially deprive generations of young people and adults of their economic and employment prospects, stability, mental health and freedom. The Education of Arabic Speaking Refugee Children and Young Adults provides a comprehensive overview of the situation of Arabic-speaking refugee children and their psychosocial, schooling and employment experiences in three case countries: Australia, Italy and Indonesia. The book considers what education arrangements were put in place for refugee children, how were they supported in schools for physical and psychological needs, how the school environment hindered or assisted their learning experience and the way in which these students were affected by the global COVID-19 pandemic. The authors provide recommendations for educational practices and employment pathways as informed by the refugee children and young adults themselves, teachers, parents, schools and state officials. This book will be of great interest to academics, researchers and post-graduate students in the fields of comparative education and refugee and migrant education. It will also be beneficial for educators, teachers and policy-makers.
