Surviving School. Education for refugee children from Rwanda, 1994-1996

This book outlines tow case studies - Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (Formerly Zaire) - on education for refugees fleeing the genocide in Rwanda. It investigates the often difficult process of establishing education programmes against turbulent political and social back grounds. The book highlights the conflicting roles that governments and agencies have played in the process of addressing the educational needs of refugee children and often limited role played by the refugees themselves in this process.

Critical issues affecting education for refugees as a whole are explored and valuable recommendations are made which could guide the future developments of education in emergency situations.
