Description:
In this activity, students explore displacement and resettlement of refugees. They will consider the impact that such policies can have on individuals. They will explore how the experience of resettlement changed or remained the same over time and in different contexts. They will collect ideas about the ways that displacement and resettlement is used and the impact it has on communities. Students will consider what they can do to facilitate the impact of resettlement on communities.
