Abstract: This paper explores the history of refugee education from World War II to the present, tracing important changes in the underlying theories related to the purposes and provision of refugee education and documenting changing relationships between international institutions and nation-states as they negotiate responsibility for the education of non-citizens. It argues that education for development paradigms give short shrift to dimensions of – and dilemmas related to – migration and citizenship that are critical to the systemic provision of quality refugee education and to the socially-inclusive educational experiences of refugee children.
