Journal on Education in Emergencies: Volume 5, Number 2

This issue of JEiE is the second part of a two-part special issue on refugees and education. The first part of the special issue provided a historical analysis of refugee education and the actions and decisions made by various actors, such as teachers, organizations, and bureaucracies, in mediating refugee children’s educational experiences. The second part complements the first with articles that focus on opportunities and outcomes in refugee education as they relate to refugees’ rights, literacy, and belonging; funding for programs that benefit refugee learners; and teachers’ professional development as they serve the education needs of refugees.
