A new refugee education pack for Irish schools has recently been launched by UNHCR Ireland. The pack introduces teachers and students to the concept of asylum, the reasons people flee and the legal protections that refugees enjoy.
Besides that, the pack also suggests and encourages activities that students may wish to undertake by themselves, including inviting refugees to the classroom or learning more about their community's history of receiving refugees from Vietnam and Bosnia, for example.
The pack also works as a great resource for community development and capacity building. It contains additional features such as interviews with refugees and films, making the content interactive and easily accessible for both educators and young people.
We greatly encourage the use of such tool, which can be fully displayed at:
