Journal on Education in Emergencies: Volume 5, Number 1

Topic(s)
Research and Evidence
Refugees

The Journal on Education in Emergencies aims to stimulate research and debate about education in emergencies; promote learning informed by evidence; define knowledge gaps and key trends for future research; and publish rigorous scholarly and practitioner work that will set standards for evidence in the field.

This special issue of JEiE—the first of two parts—showcases research on important developments in the field of refugee education across several regions, including the Middle East, Latin America, and Africa. The issue includes four research articles, one interview, two field notes, and three book reviews. 

The contributing authors describe and analyze how international agencies, state bureaucracies, local organizations and their partners, and refugees shape the structures that influence the education of refugees, both historically and in the present, and how these actors imagine their roles. In so doing, the authors help to untangle key questions about how responsibility for meeting refugees’ educational needs and aspiration is taken up and shared. The articles in this issue include immediate and long-term lessons for how refugee education is designed and experienced.
