Taking a multi-disciplinary perspective, and one grounded in human rights, Unaccompanied young migrants explores in depth the journeys migrant youth take through the UK legal and care systems. Arriving with little agency, what becomes of these children as they grow and assume new roles and identities, only to risk losing legal protection as they reach eighteen? Through international studies and crucially the voices of the young migrants themselves, the book examines the narratives they present, and the frameworks of culture and legislation in to which they are placed. Challenging existing policy, it questions, from a social justice perspective, what the treatment of this group tells us about our systems and the cultural presuppositions on which they depend.

There are many misconceptions about young refugees and asylum seekers in Britain. Declan Henry dispels the myths and gives a compassionate and empathetic view of the daily struggles they face including discrimination, racism and poverty. This book explores the reasons why they came to the UK and the safeguarding issues involved, the services they receive and the gaps and inequalities in the system as a whole. The injustice of long Home Office delays in the processing of applications and appeal processes are outlined and, as it is becoming more difficult for many young people to get Leave to Remain, the impact on their lives in terms of accommodation, education and planning for the future are explored. The author also looks at the emotional and mental health needs of young people including those with undiagnosed learning needs and difficulties. Ultimately, the book paints a graphic picture of what life is like in Britain for young people – cut off from their country of their origin and families – and how they are expected to make a new life in Britain with limited resources. There are works of non-fiction that are not only timely but also extremely important. Young Refugees And Asylum Seekers by author Declan Henry is one of them. The refugee crisis, and the plight of children and young adults, is brought into sharp focus in this powerful, challenging and well-written book. With precision, this author highlights both the lack of resources and unfair treatment of those who enter a new country without a caregiver as well as the monumental efforts of good people who work within a challenging system to exact change while practicing kindness. The importance of seeing children as children first is at the core of this valuable book. And we are reminded that the way we treat the most vulnerable is a testament to who we are, fundamentally, as human beings and a society. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to better understand the refugee crisis and to those in search of an opportunity to make a difference.

A study assessing the welfare of immigrant and refugee youth in Australia is reported on in this document, which is divided into five chapters. Chapter 1 summarizes findings and presents recommendations for government action and policy; overall, it was found that the personal, social, educational, and employment needs of the teenage immigrant population are not presently being acknowledged or met. Chapter 2 describes the background of the Ethnic Liaison Officer Working Party No.2, the government-appointed body that prepared the report. Chapter 3 reviews Australian literature on schooling and the adolescent immigrant. The review points to a need for research on the English language, education, and training needs of immigrants and refugees who arrive in Australia as young adults. Chapter 4 provides an overview of educational choices available to the immigrant student, including English as a Second Language and bilingual education programs. Chapter 5 assesses the educational needs of immigrants who are beyond the age of compulsory schooling. Problems of unemployment and acculturation are given special focus. The appendices list the Working Party's terms of reference and membership, and outline the information needs identified by the Working Party. (KH)
