What is the difference between asylum seekers, refugees and economic migrants? - Dateline | SBS | Intercultural Understanding | Scoop.it

Often the terms ‘migrant’, ‘refugee’ and ‘asylum seeker’ are used interchangeably. But they each have explicit legal definitions that distinguish one from the other, and prescribe specific obligations for governments and the international community

Maree Whiteley's insight:
How often have you heard these terms? The distinctions are important, particularly for those being labeled. Thanks SBS

Grazie mille Maree! That question opens up a can of worms!! Of course a person can develop intercultural understanding to a degree but because language and culture cannot be separated, opportunities for IC development are much starker and more immediate if a person speaks the language as well. Some interesting things in this video eg 75% of the world speaks more than one language. This is going straight to the pool room (ie Rescoop!)

New Text,

Tiger Stone by Deryn Mansell
 A great fictional story set in a historical context for upper primary and lower secondary. In 14th century Java, a village sits in the shadow of a rumbling volcano that overshadows their lives. Villagers live in fear of Mbah Merapi erupting and destroying their community. This is the story of a lowly kitchen servant, Kancil, who is mute and fatherless. She needs to find a way to warn the villagers of the danger they are in without revealing her true identity.

40+ Children's Books about Human Rights & Social Justice

40+ Children's Books about Human Rights & Social Justice | Intercultural Understanding | Scoop.it
by: Monisha Bajaj

“An education capable of saving humanity is no small undertaking; it
involves … the preparation of young people to understand the times in
which they live.



— Maria Montessori, Education and Peace

Young people have an innate sense of right and wrong, fair and unfair.
 Explaining the basics of human rights in age appropriate ways with stories
and examples can set the foundation for a lifelong commitment to social
responsibility and global citizenship. 

As a parent to a preschooler and a professor of peace and human rights
education, here are my top picks for children's books that discuss
important issues—and that are visually beautiful. Some of the books listed
offer an overview of rights; the majority show individuals and
organizations past and present who have struggled to overcome injustices.
All offer different levels of child-friendly images, concepts and text. 

With my son who is 3, sometimes we will skip certain passages or pages, but
introducing him to books like the ones listed below that include characters
of different races, religions, genders, abilities, sexual orientations, and
other backgrounds at an early age will hopefully lay the foundation for
deeper engagement with these texts and issues later on. Lately, he has been
making tea in his play kitchen for Martin Luther King Jr. and the other day
asked about Nelson Mandela’s grandchildren.

Some of these books are on our shelf at home, others we have found at the
library or at friends’ houses.

What’s on your list of go-to books for talking about human rights and
social justice issues with your children? Let’s keep the list growing in
the comments section below!
