Abstract

Alongside moments of connection, valued interaction and sharing, working with refugee children and families can easily be described as some of the most personally challenging work we have experienced. This article intends to offer our modest reflections on the value and difference, limitations and dilemmas, that skilled practitioners can bring to voluntary support for families living in the context of forced migration and the accompanying punitive political landscapes. We draw on our experiences of working with the Schoolbox project in one small refugee camp in western Greece, which is the temporary home to Syrian and Iraqi refugees of Arab and Kurdish ethnicity.
