Welcome to the fourth episode of The Refuge!

Coinciding with the start of the new academic year, we continue our discussion of refugee children’s wellbeing and language learning; focusing on supports available in schools and communities. We also cast an eye on the differences and similarities between refugee experiences in Canada and Germany. 

Joining us to share their perspectives are Katrin Lindner - Associate Professor at the German Department of the University of Munich, Becky Chen - Professor of Applied Psychology and Human Development at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto, and Monique Gagne - Research Associate with the Human Early Learning Partnership at the University of British Columbia. 

Our guests offer a range of recommendations on how schools, teachers, and government policies can better support refugee children and their families.
