Learning for a Future: Refugee Education in Developing Countries.
Crisp, Jeff, Ed.; Talbot, Christopher, Ed.; Cipollone, Daiana B., Ed.
This collection of papers is the product of research conducted by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The papers, which were presented at a 2001 workshop, "Refugee Education in Developing Countries: Policy and Practice," are: "Education in Emergencies" (Margaret Sinclair), which reviews the rationale for education in situations of emergency and crisis, noting elements of education in response to several recent disasters; "On School Quality and Attainment" (James H. Williams), which examines research on education in developing countries to see what lessons can be learned for refugee education in care and maintenance situations; "Improving the Quality and Attainment in Refugee Schools: The Case of the Bhutanese Refugees in Nepal" (Timothy Brown), which highlights the lack of consistent donor funding to maintain even the low-cost models of refugee education supported by UNHCR; "Peace Education and Refugee Youth" (Marc Sommers), which examines the conceptual framework underlying education for peace; and "Vocational Training for Refugees: A Case Study from Tanzania" (Erik Lyby), which evaluates the ongoing formal and informal vocational training programs for Burundian refugees in Tanzania.
