The Status and Rights of Refugees
Although it is impossible for those who have not been a refugee to fully comprehend what it is like, in this exercise students will attempt to put themselves, at least imaginatively, in their shoes. Through this activity, students should begin to understand that refugees are generally not able to plan their migration in advance; consequently they end up ill-prepared to face the incredibly difficult situations ahead of them. It includes an information sheet and links to further resources. Designed for middle school students (US system).
