Dr Amy North co-edits journal on migrants' educational challenges

Dr Amy North from the Centre for Education and International Development (CEID) has co-edited a special issue of 'European Education' that explores rethinking equity in education for refugees and migrants.

The special issue examines the complex educational challenges faced by migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers and focuses on different ways of understanding equity in relation to education for and with refugees and migrants.

The core articles gathered for the issue originate from last summer's Comparative Education Society in Europe (CESE) conference in Glasgow, which explored the theme of equity in and through education.

The special issue addresses the question of equity in diverse local, national, and transnational contexts and from an interdisciplinary approach. It looks at ways of understanding and improving educational equity through two particular themes: teaching and learning with/of refugees, migrants, and forcefully immobile; and migrant children, youth, and adults' inclusion/exclusion in education.  

Dr North co-edited the special issue with Dr Marta Moskal, from the School of Education at Durham University. It includes articles by Dr North, as well as CEID alumnus Hazel Klenk.
