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.
