Overview: This collection will offer an in-depth exploration of key issues in the education of adolescents and adults with refugee backgrounds who have been resettled in the main refugee receiving areas of North America, Australia, and Europe. Until recently, educational researchers have devoted little attention to refugee-background students, despite the high numbers of refugees living in these areas. Although research on other immigrant groups sometimes references refugees and/or asylum-seekers, much of that literature fails to take into account the particular educational backgrounds, migration experiences, and identity preferences of this population (McBrien, 2005). Hence, this volume will address geographic and thematic gaps in existing educational research.

This volume focuses in particular on students' goals, voices, and experiences, and each contributor will be asked to address the contextual factors (both macro and micro level) that inform their analysis. Authors will also be asked to discuss implications of their work for educators and policy-makers. Chapters will be clustered according to three themes: Adjustment, Literacy, and Equity.
