- Publisher's Summary
- This title offers a global exploration of formal and non-formal education provision to refugees and asylum seekers in refugee camps, and in schools and universities of host countries. 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. This series presents an authoritative, coherent and focused collection of texts to introduce and promote the notion of education as a humanitarian response as a prime function of educational activity. The series takes a holistic interpretation of education, dealing not only with formal schooling and other systemic provisions in the mainstream, but rather with educational reality - teaching and learning in whatever form it comes at any age.
