The northern Iraqi part of Kurdistan has been an area of protection for many people who have fled since the genocide by the so-called Islamic State in 2014. The refugee camps there, originally intended as a short-term solution, have become a permanent reality of life for many children and teenagers, some of whom are severely traumatized. The school of Our Bridge is located directly next to the refugee camp of Khanke in Kurdistan and has developed a specific pedagogical concept for children of the refugee camp. They are offered a carefully balanced, multi-faceted everyday experience, and access to a variety of educational opportunities. ‘School development at refugee camps (SchoolDeC)' is a research project of the University of Tübingen in cooperation with the school of Our Bridge. The objective is to assess and systematise the status of its school development and to derivedevelop recommendations from the perspectives given by different local key actors. The results, recommendations, and possible perspectives for development are presented in this volume.
