New book on refugee education

29 January 2002

UNHCR has just published a new book titled, "Learning for a future: refugee education in developing countries" edited by Jeff Crisp, Christopher Talbot and Daiana B. Cipollone.The book examines a wide range of issues relating to refugee education, including education in acute emergencies, the quality of learning and attainment in refugee schools, education for peace, and vocational training programmes for refugees. Aimed primarily at field practitioners and refugee programme managers, as well as governments and academic researchers, the book is intended to stimulate new and more effective approaches to refugee education in countries which are struggling to provide adequate schooling to their own citizens.
