Refugee Youth in Public Space


Education Toolkit ‘Local Migration Histories – Global Connections’ now available!

Our education toolkit ‘Local Migration Histories – Global Connections’ is now available for access. The education toolkit is based on the research conducted with young refugees and asylum seekers in the four European cities of Brussels, Amsterdam, Leipzig and Newcastle upon Tyne, as part of our HERA research. This teaching guide provides exercises and materials to explore how migration has shaped today’s cities. They give insights into the everyday experiences of newcomers to cities, including issues of belonging, inclusion and exclusion, as well as to urban histories of migration. It is aimed at secondary school students (ca. 13-16 years old) and the methods included in this guide were tried and tested in the research and adapted for use in secondary school lessons and projects.

The exercises were developed by the Johanna Bastian, Pascale Felten, Lea Haack, Kathrin Hörschelmann, Elisabeth Kirndörfer and Ilse van Liempt. Special thanks also go to Irene Johannsen and Simone Fass for making the guide visually attractive and easy to navigate
