Written by Jill Rutter and published by the Refugee Council as part of Refugees and the New Europe, a joint information project funded by the European Commission's Development Education Fund. The publication is available from the Refugee Council, 3 Bondway, London SW8 1SJ, UK.
Through the activities in this book, children learn why people leave their homes and become refugees, and about the issues facing them - when they leave home, journey to safety, settle new places, and perhaps, return home. Students learn about current events and explore concepts such as human rights, justice, fear, safety, leaving home and becoming a newcomer. Such work may encourage students to develop attitudes such as empathy and a commitment to justice. The resource book is aimed at students in the UK and is relevant to various parts of the National Curriculum. However, many of the exercises have more widespread application.
