Echo amphitheatre: Refugees, basic income and education / learning re WUaS?, Seems like a combination of all of these great online education platforms accessible on smartphones and on computers in languages and nation states of state-less people in refugee camps accessible via WIKI World University and School might be the answer, Basic income for refugees through mobile phones in part too?, Stanford "Medicine Grand Rounds: Protecting Civilians in War: Rethinking the Medical Response to Conflict"


Heard a great talk at Stanford Medicine Grand Rounds on Wednesday:

Medicine Grand Rounds: Protecting Civilians in War: Rethinking the Medical Response to Conflict


http://medicinecalendars.stanford.edu/event/medicine-grand-rounds-protecting-civilians-in-war/

While the talk focused on MD clinicians (and World University and School's medical schools with online teaching hospitals in all ~200 countries' official/main languages may be able to help with this too), Paul Wise MD also focused on the causes of war.

I asked afterward how a basic universal income might help {Quaker-wise} take away the causes of war, and Paul said that the issue in the largest refugee camp in the world (with about 300,000 people living there for more than 20 years) - and where there's cash assistance available from the U.N. or similar - was that the country didn't want the refugees to assimilate ... so a basic income might not work here, in protecting civilians from war ...

Why Finland’s Basic Income Experiment Isn’t Working

Conclusion:

"So what can we learn from all of this so far? How not to conduct a trial of this kind. Universal basic income can only succeed if the effort is sustained and widespread — and not available only to the unemployed. The program should not be intended to force people into low-paying jobs.
The Finnish government has a chance to correct its course. It should expand the trial in early 2018, as originally planned, and steer it back to its original ideals: a bold experiment to collect hard data about how a much-debated idea actually works in practice. Only that would honor Finland’s tradition of experimenting with innovative social policies."

Education in the Second Largest Refugee Camp in the World

https://www.globalpartnership.org/blog/education-second-largest-refugee-camp-world

*
According to our latest education report, 3.5 million refugee children did not attend school in 2016. Only 61 per cent of refugee children attend primary school, compared with a global average of 91 per cent.
As refugee children age, the obstacles to education increase. Just 23 per cent of refugee adolescents are enrolled in secondary school, compared to 84 per cent globally. For tertiary education the situation is critical. Only one per cent of refugee youth attends university, compared to 36 per cent globally.
