Education And Internally Displaced Persons

RRP $49.99

Explores the barriers and benefits to education that displacement may bring, as well as the specific challenges for education in the context of internal displacement.

What are the barriers to education for internally displaced people? How can these be overcome? Drawing on research from a diverse set of countries, including the USA, Somalia, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Columbia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bosnia and Herzegovina, the contributors consider the relationship between education and internally displaced people. These case studies raise fundamental questions regarding the barriers to education and some unexpected benefits for displaced children. The dynamics that impact access and quality of education for internally displaced people are examined and the the role education can play in rebuilding societies and strengthening peace building processes is considered. Each case study brings to light a different aspect of displacement including various causes; current legal protection and its implications for government action and practical responses; challenges arising from country contexts related to the scale and duration of displacement; and the role of education in meeting the needs of returnees.
