Book: South–South Educational Migration, Humanitarianism and Development: Views from the Caribbean, North Africa, and the Middle East, by E. Fiddian-Qasmiyeh, Routledge (Oxford), 2015. South–South cooperation – collaboration among states and non-state actors in the global South in economic, political, cultural, and technical domains – is gaining growing attention from states, policy-makers, and academics. A recent Human Development Report titled The Rise of the South notes that: ‘The South has risen at an unprecedented speed and scale…countries of the South are collectively bolstering world economic growth, lifting other developing economies, reducing poverty and increasing wealth on a grand scale’ (2013, p.1). While much of the discussion on South–South collaboration focuses on economic and trade benefits stemming from such partnerships, cooperation among Southern actors can also create important opportunities for people to build human capital, especially through the provision of education (Bakewell, 2009, p.55). However, the literature on South–South cooperation around education remains limited, and in particular few studies have explored South–South cooperation in the context of refugees' education. Fiddian-Qasmiyeh's book is a major contribution that seeks to address this gap.
