Across the world, children are forced to leave their homes for far-flung destinations. This global phenomenon has particular impact in Europe, where there are now more child refugees than since World War II. Education plays an important role for children with extraordinary experiences seeking to build meaningful lives in their new context.
The article Theorising policy and practice in refugee education: Conceptualising 'safety', 'belonging', 'success' and 'participatory parity' in England and Sweden by Sinikka Neuhaus (Department of Educational Sciences, Lund University, Sweden) and Joanna McIntyre (School of Education, University of Nottingham, United Kingdom) was published in British Educational Research Journal in 2021, and has become one of the top downloaded articles that year. It offers a new theoretical approach to underpin reforms to educational policy and practice for refugees in schools in resettlement contexts in Europe.
