Abstract: In this article, I probe a question at the core of comparative education – how to
realize the right to education for all and ensure opportunities to use that education
for future participation in society. I do so thorough examination of refugee
education from World War II to the present, including analysis of an original
dataset of documents (n=214) and semi-structured interviews (n=208). The data
illuminate how refugee children are caught between the global promise of
universal human rights, the definition of citizenship rights within nation-states,
and the realization of these sets of rights in everyday practices. Conceptually, I
demonstrate the misalignment between normative aspirations, codes and
doctrines, and mechanisms of enforcement within nation-states, which curtail
refugees’ abilities to activate their rights to education, to work, and to participate
in society.
