Asylum migration causes intense media and political debate. However, little attention has been paid to how forced migrants can rebuild their lives in the UK or elsewhere. This timely book analyzes the social policies that impact on refugee children's education, and: Provides the background to the migration of refugeesExplores how dominant discourses about trauma homogenise and label a very diverse group of childrenExamines how policy towards refugees is made, and how it relates to practiceOffers alternative visions for refugee settlement Drawing on case studies of the experiences of refugee children, Refugee Children in the UK brings a much-needed insight into the needs of refugee children. It is valuable reading for academics, policy makers, students of education, sociology and social policy as well as education, health and social work professionals.
