Please join me in congratulating Dr. Lorrie Miller and co-editor, Wenona Giles, who will be receiving The Jackie Kirk Award from the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) on April 7, 2022 for the edited book collection entitled: Borderless Higher Education for Refugees: Lessons from the Dadaab Refugee Camps. They will accept the award on behalf of all of the contributors to the book. As with the book royalties, the award will be sent to Windle Trust International to support refugees in Kenya who are studying in university programs.
The Jackie Kirk Award annually honours a published book that reflects one or some of the varied areas of expertise represented in Jackie Kirk’s areas of commitment, primarily gender and education and/or education in conflict (fragile states, post-conflict, peace education). Jackie Kirk was also committed to work on identity (particularly of girls and teachers), globalization as a context for local practice, and visual participatory research methodologies.
