    Pathways to Resilience in Risk-Laden Environments: A Case Study of Syrian Refugee Education in Lebanon by Oula Abu-Amsha and Jill Armstrong

    What it means to be resilient and make resilient choices takes a variety of forms for students and families affected by conflict. For refugees, making resilient decisions regarding education may mean sending children to school, but it could also mean keeping them home to work or to avoid threatening or exclusionary school environments. JEiE’s Claudia Segura and author Oula Abu-Amsha delve into these hard choices and the ways the Jusoor School, an NGO created to bridge the non-formal and formal education sectors in Lebanon, serves as a space for students whose educational pathway calls for a new type of school.

    Education can provide stability and continuity for refugees, but it can also contribute to tension between host-country students and newcomers, especially if teachers’ capacity is limited and pressure to deliver a scripted curriculum is high. Join JEiE’s Nathan Thompson and authors Thea Renda Abu El-Haj and Garene Kaloustian as they reflect on three years observing Lebanese, Syrian refugee, and Palestinian refugee Kindergarteners at a single school and share insights on these students’ feelings of belonging and exclusion and their struggle to take agency and become citizens of their classrooms.

    The Politics of Education in Iraq: The Influence of Territorial Dispute and Ethno-Politics on School in Kirkuk by Kelsey Shanks

Join JEiE’s Nathan Thompson and author Kelsey Shanks as they unpack how these tensions, spurred in part by mother-tongue education provisions in the post-2003 invasion Constitution of Iraq, have played out for educational administration and content in the region.

    Mapping the Relationship between Education Reform and Power-Sharing in and after Intrastate Peace Agreements: A Multi-Methods Study by Giuditta Fontana

    Peace agreements that divide power between groups that have been at war are more likely to include provisions for educational reform. The more dynamically that power is shared in the new government, the more likely these educational reforms are to promote multiple identities rather than cultural convergence. Join JEiE’s Deborah Osomo and author Giuditta Fontana as they discuss education reforms in peace agreements, using Lebanon, Northern Ireland, and Macedonia as case studies.
