A bridge between two worlds : leadership among resettled Sudanese youth in an American city /

by Gale, Lacey | United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Publisher: Geneva, Switzerland United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees 2011Description: PDF.Other title: New issues in refugee research. Research paper ; no. 211.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography pp. 22-26Summary: Humanitarian efforts are often focused on children in conflict, since the international legal definitions create a practical framework for addressing child-specific needs. Youth have different needs than children, however, and possess more potential to influence both the society around them and their home communities. Resettled youth face multiple transitions simultaneously, from conflict to third country resettlement and from child to adult. Their needs include not only the legal aspects of protection, but also the social and economic aspects, noted in UNHCR's Age, Gender and Diversity Mainstreaming strategy as the spheres in which most rights violations of persons of concern occur. The goal of this case study is to map resettled refugee youth participation and leadership in a particular context and to discuss how these findings apply to a broader humanitarian youth agenda. It became apparent over the course of this project that UNHCR is in the process of defining a discrete policy for youth. This case study identifies a cohort of young leaders in Maine who, along with their peers in the United States as well as other resettlement countries, have the potential to contribute to the formulation of UNHCR's policy on youth.Availability: (1)

These programs occur in or in association with schools and involve community providers (such as the Royal Australian Air Force, State Emergency Service and Scouts Australia). The researchers gathered anecdotal evidence about changes in behaviours and attitudes of young people participating in such activities. They noted that while improvements were reported in areas such as skills, knowledge and confidence, there were considerable differences between what young people expected from the programs and what they experienced. Their findings lead to a series of policy and program suggestions.Availability: (1)
