Principle Versus practice: Case study on education and displacement in Turkey

Internal displacement can jeopardise children’s right to education, in both protracted and emergency situations. This case study focuses on two factors that affect displaced children’s ability to exercise their right to education: poverty and discrimination. It is based on IDMC research in Turkey in November 2009, on IDMC’s routine monitoring of internal displacement in Turkey, and on desk study of relevant publications.
