Promoting access to quality, safe, and relevant education for all persons affected by crisis

JEiE: Call for Papers

Journal on Education in Emergencies (JEiE)

Call for Papers – Volume 6

 

Special Issue on Refugees and Education

Projected publication: Spring 2019

Submission deadline: 15 October 2018

 

Worldwide, the number of refugees and forcibly displaced people is now the highest on record. In 2016 alone, 65.6 million people were displaced by violent conflict, natural disasters, or human rights violations, and many of these people are living as refugees . Approximately half of the refugee population are children under 18, and half of all refugee children do not attend school. Less than 1% of university-age refugees enroll in higher education (as opposed to the world average of 34%). Many displaced children make the journey alone: 75,000 unaccompanied minors applied for asylum in 2016 (UNHCR, 2016). Protracted displacement presents a challenge for managing refugee populations and providing resources. Refugee children are “likely to spend their entire school-age years…in host countries” (Dryden-Peterson 2016, 478). These children are some of the most vulnerable in the world, and education has a vital role to play in their protection, wellbeing, and future opportunities. At present, education programming for refugee children and youth is inadequate, and there is a gap in research examining this topic.

The Journal on Education in Emergencies seeks research articles and field notes submissions for a Special Issue on Refugees and Education. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Effects of displacement on all levels of education
  • Refugee education policy
  • Education experiences of unaccompanied minors
  • Innovative approaches to refugee education and education for displaced persons (formal and nonformal)
  • Early childhood education for refugee children
  • Refugee education in urban settings
  • Gender and refugee education
  • Disability and refugee education
  • Education for refugee returnees
  • The roles of universities and academic constituencies in addressing refugees’ educational needs
  • Digital education for refugees

 

We welcome theoretical and empirical research articles that address any aspect of education in relation to refugees and displaced children and youth across the age-range, as well as field notes submissions that present innovative tools or approaches related to EiE initiatives for this population, or observations and commentary on research work. We also welcome books for review on these topics.

All manuscripts are subject to a double-blind peer review process and must have a 200-word abstract. Research articles should be 9,000 words or fewer, and field notes submissions should be 4,000 words or fewer (references not included in word count). Format and references should follow the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition.

Recognizing the global scope of these issues, we welcome submissions from all regions of the world.

The deadline for submitting manuscripts is October 15, 2018.

Inquiries regarding topic or scope for the special issue can be sent to journal@ineesite.org. For further information regarding submission process please refer to: http://www.ineesite.org/en/journal/manuscript-submission-instructions

 

********************************************************************************

Ongoing call for papers:


The Journal on Education in Emergencies (JEiE) seeks to publish groundbreaking scholarly and practitioner work on education in emergencies (EiE), defined broadly as “quality learning opportunities for all ages in situations of crisis, including early childhood development, primary, secondary, non-formal, technical, vocation, higher and adult education” (INEE 2010).

JEiE calls for papers that contribute to the broader work of the EiE community and address educational challenges in humanitarian and/or development settings. We welcome both theoretical and empirical research articles that address any aspect of education in emergencies or in relation to peace, conflict, or natural disaster. We also seek field notes submissions that present innovative tools or approaches related to EiE initiatives, or observations and commentary on research work.

We also welcome books for review on topics related to education in emergencies. Authors or publishers are requested to submit two copies to the Journal’s Book Review Editor for consideration for review in an upcoming issue.

All manuscripts are subject to a double-blind peer review process and must have a 200-word abstract. Research articles should be 9,000 words or fewer, and field notes submissions should be 4,000 words or fewer. Format and references should follow the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition.

Submissions are reviewed on a rolling basis.
