Summary/Abstract: In this article, I delve into a question at the heart of the complex interaction between governmental and non-governmental personnel dealing and working with refugees. How do they support the realization of refugees; rights once they have any form of protection? For instance, how do they ensure equal opportunities to use the right to education to rejuvenate and furnish refugees; dignity? Refugees have the same human rights as citizens. However, the rights enshrined in international refugee law suffer from the promise of a universal framework within states. The definitions of making the rights of refugees as those of the citizens did not lead to the major realization of these sets of rights in everyday practices. Conceptually, I demonstrate the disparity between international refugees’ norms and mechanisms of enforcement within European societies. This has hampered refugees; ability to gain equal access to education and employment. Education thus plays a real, albeit limited, role for both the general public and refugees, for whom having easy access to it may be one of their main hopes in various ways of life. This paper will attempt to illuminate educational problems in their larger context by examining comprehensive and integrated approaches to assessing the needs of refugees in developing and developed countries: Romania, Germany, and Norway.
