- This paper provides an overview of government policies and major challenges of refugee education in selected Western European and Asia-Pacific countries. The findings show that refugee education in Western European and Oceanic countries is in general better than East and Southeast Asian countries although many problems and challenges remain. Lastly, this paper also discusses the policy and practical implications of the findings on the improvement of education provision for refugee children in Hong Kong, an Asian international city and a special administrative region of China hosting to more than 10,000 asylum seekers, of which about 500 are school age children.
