Education, Asylum and the Non-Citizen Child : The Politics of Compassion and Belonging Hardback
Awarded 2nd Prize, Best Book award, the Society for Education Studies, 2011Refugees are physically and symbolically 'out of place' - their presence forces governments to address issues of rights and moral obligations.
This book contrasts the hostility of immigration policy to 'non-citizen'' children with teachers' exceptional compassion and 'citizen students' ambivalence in defining who can belong.
