Schools can provide the ideal environment to improve integration and reduce the difficulties faced by refugee children. Schools are a place where refugee children can develop meaningful and constructive connections to peers, teachers and other professionals, and they are also a place in which discrimination, racism and stigmatisation can be actively countered.
There is an urgent need to facilitate the integration of refugee children in Western asylum-countries as the number of individuals who have been forced to flee their homes and country of origin has increased rapidly in recent years. As a result, the need to understand how best to support such individuals, especially the youngest of them, has become pressing.
