MEDIA REVIEWS
"The challenges to providing quality school and university education to refugees are complex and call for innovative yet cultural specific approaches. The contributors to Refugee Education: Language Teaching and Pedagogy have presented successful approaches to schooling, higher education and settlement that would enable refugees to assimilate into their new surroundings." -- Dr Rahul Ganguly * Senior Lecturer (Special Education-Mathematics), University of Southern Queensland, Australia *
"Today, geographical mobility to enhance learning and career is normal because of the availability of knowledge and know-how. However, within this seemingly positive occurrence of human mobility across geographical boundaries, lies the often unacknowledged realities of the other extreme of the mobility continuum -- forced migration. Refugee related issues such as welfare, resettlement, employment and education require greater research and scrutiny. Of these critical is the need to ensure that refugees -- children and adults, are provided with enough opportunities to function meaningfully in the new society. Education is key to achieving this goal, particularly the acquisition of language literacies to succeed in the various environments -- school, higher education, workplace and everyday life. This volume on Refugee Education: Language Teaching and Pedagogy, carefully selected papers have been compiled that should be considered nations and systems that engage with and manage the crisis of humanity related to refugees and their human rights." -- Ganakumaran Subramaniam (PhD) * Professor, Head of School. School of Education. University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus *
"We live in precarious times. International mobility has, by and large, become a conduit for the plethora of social issues associated with the global refugee crisis the planet is currently grappling with. Quality educational experiences is seen as a solution to curb the many socio-economic, socio-cultural, and psychosocial complications that stem from the crisis. This volume on 'Refugee Education -- Language Teaching and Pedagogy' is timely as it explores the many ways in which the various educational and language contexts are and can be intertwined to produce sustainable and conducive learning and teaching environments to enable the refugee community to better assimilate with their new realities." -- Dr Subarna Sivapalan * Senior Lecturer, Language & Communications. Head, Centre for Social Transformation for Sustainable Lifestyles (CSS). Institute for Sustainable Living, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, Malaysia. *
