Forced Migration and Displacement: Understanding the Refugee Journey

  • 775 Accesses

Abstract

This chapter unpacks notions of forced migration and displacement, arguing that understanding different migratory patterns is crucial to locating the educational experiences of refugee youth globally. It will explore, through examples from UNHCR resettlement countries , how forced migrants are positioned as “the other” and are disconnected from the dominant discourse causing repercussions for education . It argues that policymakers and practitioners have a critical role to play in reframing thinking about education for forced migrants such as refugees, by helping to shape a narrative which incorporates and values the experiences of those affected by displacement.
