Forced displacement represents a major barrier to achieving Sustainable Development Goal #4, ensuring inclusive and quality education for all. This project examines the role of quality education in mitigating the negative educational, socio-economic, and psycho-social effects of forced displacement, with a focus on the Rohingya refugee crisis in Bangladesh. The Rohingya refugee crisis is one of the worst forced displacement situations and the fastest growing refugee crisis in the world. Rohingya refugee children are also facing an education crisis: Access to education was restricted in Myanmar, while education programs are currently serving only few Rohingya refugee children living in camps. We therefore propose an inter-disciplinary, mixed methods project to improve knowledge about 1) whether and how education is contributing to mitigating the effects of forced displacement by comparing in-camp, out-of-camp, and host populations, and 2) how to improve the quality of education programs for conflict-affected populations. The project will generate evidence-based policy recommendations about how to improve the quality of education in situations of conflict and humanitarian crisis. We will do this by mapping the landscape of education programs for Rohingya refugees; conducting a survey with refugees of their education needs, preferences, and expectations; and collecting in-depth qualitative data. We will use innovative dissemination methods to communicate the project’s findings, including producing a short documentary film about the process of establishing education programs in the camps, the role of education in helping Rohingya refugees to cope with and overcome the effects of forced displacement, and the views of refugees on how education programs are addressing their needs, preferences, and expectations.
