Barriers and bridges: access to education for internally displaced children

Of the more than 27 million children estimated to lack access to education in emergency situations, substantial numbers are internally displaced. For these children not only is their educational development denied but they are deprived of other important benefits as well. This paper examines barriers to education for internally displaced children, such as lack of infrastructure, safety, loss of documentation, residency requirements, language, discrimination, school fees, material requirements, economic responsibilities, and the experience of displacement.
