The international community has felt overwhelmed by refugees and asylum seekers since 2014. In 2018, UNHCR numbers of displaced people reached a record high of 68.5 million. Large numbers of refugees can result in turmoil and concern in resettlement countries.
Children are caught in the crossfire of social and political disagreements about migration; most of whom never chose to leave their homelands in the first place.
The book examines academic challenges faced by six English-speaking refugee resettlement countries, as well as successes and new approaches. Policymakers, teachers, social service providers, and the general public need to find ways to help resettled refugees become productive members in their new countries of residence.
