EDUC 246 - Forced Migration and Education

Explores forced migration through the lens of human rights, and specifically the right to a quality education. Students consider the field of “education in emergencies,” what it is and how it works, specifically examining the role of external and local actors in addressing education issues in countries or regions affected by conflict or disaster. Through a critical analysis of notions of “crisis” and “emergency”, students gain a deeper understanding of global, national, and local refugee policy and practice. Drawing on memoirs, documentaries, and primary documents, students examine the intimate nature of forced migration, countering the image of faceless masses moving within and across borders. Students investigate and assess education programs as part of a short term response to conflict and long term peacebuilding efforts.
