Decolonising Education in a Palestinian Refugee Camp webinar, 15 September

13th June 2022

Palestinian refugee communities today are facing great difficulty in expressing their knowledge through the Humanitarian-aid educational institutions. So how can Palestinian refugees decolonize their own educational process to provide their children with education that meets their needs, tells their story and responds to their unique livelihood?  Yafa El Masri will be our 10th webinar speaker and will present her work on 15 September.
