FIRE: Forum for International Research in Education, v4 n1 p113-138 2017
This study aimed at examining the pedagogical needs and challenges of children and young adults living in a refugee camp in France known as the "Calais Jungle." Through the researchers' observations and interviews with volunteer teachers and workers at the camp, insights into their perspectives shed light on the pedagogical needs of refugees. Also, utilizing Paulo Freire's philosophical stance, this study provides a contextual approach to the educational practices and ideological viewpoints represented within unregulated refugee camp settings.
