How do we help pupils understand the issue of Migration and Asylum?
Let’s take action to share our ideas on the complex global phenomenon of the movement of people who seek a better life.
These lessons will help teachers support pupils as they explore the reality of life as a refugee.
The aim of these materials is to provide ideas for teachers to address issues linked to migration and asylum, including the right to a nationality, protection under the Refugee Convention (1951), to be treated with dignity, and to live in safety and security.
The Refugee Convention is based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948), which states that people have the right to seek a place of asylum if they are being persecuted in their own country. The lessons are closely linked to many of the 17 SDGs.
