School-aged refugees: Are they a burden or a social responsibility?

13 Mar 2017

In this Op-Ed, the availability of education for school going refugee children in various host countries in Europe is discussed. While host countries do not have an obligation to provide education to refugee children, this op-ed concludes that in the long term, "implementing policies aimed at increasing the number of refugees who have access to education, host countries reduce the risk of tensions between communities, child labor, radicalization, and crime rates."
