Prize-winning journalist and the co-author of smash New York Times bestseller I Am Malala, Christina Lamb, now tells the inspiring true story of another remarkable young hero: Nujeen Mustafa, a teenager born with cerebral palsy, whose harrowing journey from war-ravaged Syria to Germany in a wheelchair is a breathtaking tale of fortitude, grit, and hope that lends a face to the greatest humanitarian issue of our time, the Syrian refugee crisis. For millions around the globe, sixteen-year-old Nujeen Mustafa embodies the best of the human spirit. Confined to a wheelchair because of her cerebral palsy and denied formal schooling in Syria because of her illness, Nujeen taught herself English by watching American soap operas. When her small town became the epicenter of the brutal fight between ISIS militants and US-backed Kurdish troops in 2014, she and her family were forced to flee. Despite her physical limitations, Nujeen embarked on the arduous trek to safety and a new life. The grueling sixteen-month odyssey by foot, boat, and bus took her across Turkey and the Mediterranean to Greece, through Macedonia to Serbia and Hungary, and finally, to Germany. Yet, in spite of the tremendous physical hardship she endured, Nujeen's extraordinary optimism never wavered. Refusing to give in to despair or see herself as a passive victim, she kept her head high. As she told a BBC reporter, "You should fight to get what you want in this world." Nujeen's positivity and resolve infuses this unforgettable story of one young woman determined to make a better life for herself. Told by acclaimed British foreign correspondent Christina Lamb, Nujeen is a unique and powerful memoir that gives voice to the Syrian refugee crisis, helping us to understand that the world must change—and offering the inspiration to make that change reality.

Since 2011, Syria has been embroiled in a civil war that has killed more than a quarter of a million people, and it all started with teenagers. That year, fifteen teenagers were arrested for writing antigovernment graffiti. The teens were reportedly subjected to horrific treatment. Peaceful protests calling for the young people's release turned violent when the government sent the army to break up the crowd. This compelling volume introduces readers to the country and region. It includes teens' firsthand accounts of the conflict, both displaced teens and those who have become soldiers, to paint a holistic, engaging portrait of one of today's worst human rights crises.

This book addresses the question of the extent of and responses to inequalities in the UK in 2017 in the wake of the 2008 Great Recession. Inequality is the issue that won't go away, a real world issue affecting all facets of society with political and economic developments such as austerity measures, Brexit and changes in political leadership impacting the inequality landscape. Six of the chapters examine the extent of economic inequalities and poverty using quantitative and qualitative methods that help map regional differences, compare the UK with the rest of the EU and go beyond the traditional measures and concepts. Seven chapters explore how inequalities have evolved since 2008 and have been tackled by policy makers in five policy areas (health, housing, education, gender and immigration) taking into account the new legislative framework and in one party (labour). Finally, six others address the issue of the governance of inequality by looking at how inequality features in the political agenda of the devolved assemblies in Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales as well as at a local level in Ipswich and London. Based on recent surveys and current academic thinking, this book provides an up-to-date account of the extent and distribution of inequalities in the UK, of the evolving ways in which inequalities are measured and addressed as well as the changing perception of inequalities by the general public and policy-makers.

In March 2018, the United Nations High Council for Refugees (UNHCR) reported that there are currently more refugees in the world than there have been since WWII (Woolley 377). Nearly 11.5 million of those displaced were forced from their homes by the Syrian civil war, which began in 2011 (UNHCR). According to Aline Lo, despite the significance of this announcement and the growing disputes about asylum seekers admission to the United States, critical classroom discussions of refugee narratives are lacking in United States schools (3). As refugee crises increase around the globe, it is crucial that students are taught to critically and compassionately analyze refugee narratives. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) states that the main goal of the Standards is to develop independent thinkers, who will be successful in the globalized workforce and post-secondary institutions of the 21st century. The ability to grapple with a topic like refugees, on multiple fronts, is central to developing such thinkers. Despite this, the CCSS offers few incentives or instructions for teachers to use multicultural or contemporary literature in their classrooms. I argue that the use of Syrian refugee literature, specifically in a secondary English Language Arts classroom, fosters the development of critical thinking, source synthesis, critical empathy, and global citizenship: all of which help to prepare students for the world they will enter after high school. In this thesis, I propose an update to Critical Pedagogy, which I call Critically Reflective Pedagogy, for use when teaching this and similar topics. By combining the techniques of Critical Pedagogy with several situation-specific teaching methods, including Launching Lessons, Procedurally Directive Teaching, and Culturally Relevant Teaching, teachers can address the complex nature of the Syrian refugee crisis in constructive ways. The pedagogy focuses on personal reflection, source analysis, open discussion, and collaborative problem solving. Using postcolonial theory to analyze the texts, students are introduced to critical means of inquiry that can be used to understand the Syrian refugee crisis and other current events. The use of these methods helps to create an environment in which students can engage with challenging topics and make personal discoveries, in the service of developing a more empathetic and global perspective of Syrian refugees. I also include four lesson plans that can be used to teach the book Nujeen: One Girl's Incredible Journey from War-Torn Syria in a Wheelchair by Nujeen Mustafa with Christina Lamb. The goal of this pedagogy and the accompanying lesson plans is that they can be adapted to address other current humanitarian crises as they arise, such as the ethnic cleansing in Myanmar, so students leave their language arts classes with the tools to handle complex problems outside of the school building.
