The Sahrawi and Afghan refugee youth in the Middle East have been
stereotyped regionally and internationally: some have been
objectified as passive victims; others have become the
beneficiaries of numerous humanitarian aid packages which presume
the primacy of the Western model of child development. This book
compares and contrasts both the stereotypes and Western-based
models of humanitarian assistance among Sahrawi youth with the lack
of programming and near total self-sufficiency of Afghan refugee
youth in Iran. Both extremes offer an important opportunity to
further explore the impact which forced migration and prolonged
conflict have had, and continue to have, on the lives of these
refugee youth and their families. This study examines refugee
communities closely linked with the United Nations High Commission
for Refugees (UNHCR) and a host of other UN agencies in the case of
the Sahrawi and near total lack of humanitarian aid in the case of
Afghan refugees in Iran.
