Migration of People
Headlines about the ‘immigration crisis’ continue to dominate the media. But do your students understand what this means in reality?
To help you engage your students in the topic of migration Young Citizens have developed a flexible teaching resource for delivery during curricular or extra-curricular sessions.
- explores the various reasons that lead people to migrate
- unpacks the differences between refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants
- examines key pieces of legislation to see what rights migrants have in national and international law
- analyses a number of real life case studies
This classroom resource was developed in partnership with international law firm Allen & Overy LLP, who provide legal services to global businesses and industry. Their support enabled this specialist resource to be distributed to schools for free.
Suggested Next Steps:

- Look into our subscription based programmes.
- Learn more about why citizenship education is important.
