Erasmus+ Migrants and Refugees as Re-builders – Case study of Naida Begovic

Language: EN

Posted by Catalina Quiroz

Erasmus+ project Migrants and Refugees as Re-builders has produced a case study that focuses on the experiences of an adult educator working with migrants and refugees in Sweden. Naida Begovic was herself a refugee who came to Sweden from Bosnia and Herzegovina as a young child, giving her a unique point of reference and true understanding of the issues these people face. The case study is formed from Naida’s responses to semi-structured interviews that explore her understanding of the challenges both her and her students experience.

‘Teaching is a beautiful profession, and one of the things that I love the most is that it allows a person to always grow in knowledge.’

The first half of the case study provides an analysis of Naida’s experiences, the second half discusses the relevance of the case study to the project outcomes. The conclusions and recommendations summarise Naida’s approach to supporting her students and link the work of adult educators to the inclusion of the migrant in society. This section also contains links to the curriculum, self-assessment framework and set of indicators for assessing a migrant or refugee’s engagement with society.

‘In addition to demonstrating understanding, and compassion, it is also important to share information about the new environment in order to encourage inclusion, and a sense of belonging.’

The case study will be particularly beneficial to those working with refugees and migrants and can be downloaded below.
