Summary "This book investigates the experiences and vulnerabilities faced by adolescents displaced by humanitarian crisis. The world is currently seeing unprecedented levels of mass displacement, and almost half of the world's 70 million displaced people are children and adolescents under the age of 18. Displacement for adolescents comes with huge disruption to their education and employment prospects, as well as poor psychosocial outcomes and increased risk of sexual and gender-based violence for girls. Considering these intersectional vulnerabilities throughout, this book explores the experiences of adolescent refugees, adolescent internally displaced persons and stateless adolescents from across Lebanon, Jordan, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Palestine and Rwanda. Drawing on innovative mixed-methods research, the book investigates education; health and nutrition; freedom from violence and bodily integrity; psychosocial wellbeing; voice and agency; and economic empowerment. Centring the diverse voices and experiences of young people and focusing on how policy and programming can be meaningfully improved, this book will be a vital guide for humanitarian students and researchers, and for practitioners seeking to build effective, evidence-based policy"-- Provided by publisher
