Abstract

This article provides a theoretical review of higher-education (HE) access for refugees in humanitarian situations. Drawing upon the case of Syrian refugees in Lebanon, we discuss challenges and opportunities around developing new HE modalities to enhance its role in the humanitarian response as well as reconfiguring refugees’ ‘unknowable future’. We also examine opportunities for HE access and the process of multidimensional partnerships, engaging with emerging practices and experiments in this sector from the perspective of future education and highlighting the opportunities that investment in HE can serve for solidarity and peace in contexts of mass displacement. Finally, we reflect upon possible ways forward and offer insights into potential sustainable solutions not only for Syrian refugees in Lebanon, but also for young displaced populations globally.
