About this book

This book responds to the reality that children and youth constitute a disproportionately large percentage of displaced populations worldwide. It demonstrates how their hopes and aspirations reflect the transient nature of their age group, and often differ from those of their elders. It also examines how they face additional difficulties due to the inconsistent definition and uneven implementation of the traditional ‘durable solutions’ to forced migration implemented by national governments and international assistance agencies. The authors use empirical research findings and robust policy analyses of cases of child displacement across the globe to make their central argument: that the particular challenges and opportunities that displaced children and youth face must be investigated and factored into relevant policy and practice, promoting more sustainable and durable solutions in the process. This interdisciplinary edited collection will appeal to students and scholars of forced migration studies, development, conflict and peace-building and youth studies, along with policy-makers, children's rights organizations and NGOs.

Reviews

“This book brings new perspective to one of the most important public policy issues of today--the fate of millions of children forced to leave their homes because of conflict and other life threatening events. Ensor and Gozdziak's focus on durable and transitional solutions addresses one of the principal challenges in humanitarian response in an era when too many children are stuck in limbo for too many years. A must read for policymakers and researchers alike.” (Susan Martin, Georgetown University, USA)

“With broad geographic scope and commendable analytic clarity, this volume is a gift to those interested in improving our global response to a human rights imperative that is not going to disappear any time soon.” (Jacqueline Bhabha, Harvard Law School, USA)
