Between Rights and Realities: Human Rights Education for Immigrant and Refugee Youth in an Urban Public High School
Bajaj, Monisha; Canlas, Melissa; Argenal, Amy
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v48 n2 p124-140 Jun 2017
This article presents data from a two-year ethnographic case study to explore how immigrant and refugee youth in the United States made sense of participation in a weekly human rights club after school. Three types of student responses to human rights education are exemplified through the profiles of students. The article offers new insights on studies of immigrant youth as well as possibilities that exist at the intersection of human rights education and anthropology of education.
