Refugee Children, Status, and Educational Attainment: A Comparative Lens

Maha Shuayb, Maurice Crul

Research output: Contribution to JournalSpecial issue (editing)Academicpeer-review

Abstract

Without a doubt, research on the education of refugee children and youth has proliferated over the past 20 years, gaining even more momentum with the Syrian crisis from 2010 onward. This special issue brings together contributions from the Global North and South to discuss the education of refugee children and youth. Although currently, approaches from the two spheres are still juxtaposed to each other in many ways. We hope that this special issue will encourage future collaborative and comparative research that can ask big questions across the global north and south and push for more inclusive human rights based thinking about refugees and education instead of continuing to perceive the issue of education of refugee children only as an emergency that merely requires a humanitarian and relief paradigm.
