Book Description

This volume explores the shared expectations that education is a panacea for the difficulties that refugees and their receiving countries face. This book investigates the ways in which education is both a dream solution as well as a contested landscape for refugee families and students. Using comparative, cross-national perspectives across five continents, the editors and contributors critically analyze the educational structures, policies, and practices intended to support refugee youth transition from conflict and post-conflict zones to mainstream classrooms and schools in their new communities.

Reviews

"Comparative Perspectives on Refugee Youth Education contributes to the field of refugee studies by challenging the assumption that education is a "cure-all" for integrating refugee youth and their families into host societies. [It] provides a comprehensive analysis of the limitations inherent in refugee youth education, challenging the burden placed on education to solve all challenges associated with refugee integration, while still highlighting the positive role it can play."
