Building a World of Justice and Solidarity:
Global Education in the School System

LISBON 2018 International Conference

Workshop 

A4. The world in the school: learning with refugees and migrants

In a time where political discourse is concentrating narrowly on the social challenges associated with migration and refugees, how can Global Education capacity for promoting reflection, justice and solidarity open the eyes to new understandings of the world through mutual learning? How can the presence in schools of children who are emigrants or refugees enrich and enliven global learning? How can migrants and refugees actively contribute to these transformative processes? What conditions can be created so that migrants and refugees are active agents of change contributing to increasing students and educators’ knowledge and capacity for critical thinking? How can welcoming school communities draw on the richness and diversity of migrant and refugee students, while also recognising tensions, cultural conflict and challenges that may arise? This workshop aims to foster discussion on how mutual learning between migrants, refugees, and other non-migrant students and teachers in the school provides an opportunity for all and for Global Education.
