The Socio-Political Challenges Facing Refugee Camp Schools

In the face of both dwindling human capacity and financial resources, how do you provide refugee camp students with an education that prepares them academically, psychologically and socially to transition into their new home countries, communities and schools?

Dr. Cranston will examine these questions and share a case-study from the Bhutanese Refugee Camps in Nepal.
