Deaf Refugees: A critical review of the current literature

This working paper presents a critical literature review of the current body of research about deaf refugees; a global population that is largely overlooked. While the literature is limited, this analysis provides insight into what is and is not known and explored about this marginalized demographic. To understand the current research about deaf refugees, an extensive and systematic review of existing literature was conducted. This review resulted in an analysis of how the current literature has largely (A) left multiple contextual gaps regarding deaf refugees, particularly those outside of the global North and (B) has generally limited the understanding of deaf refugees as victims or users within a system or related to an institution, thus overlooking deaf refugee agency. More importantly, this analysis identifies the need for increased research with deaf refugees and increased inclusion of deaf refugee research in the fields of Deaf Studies, Disability Studies, and Refugee Studies.

The study demonstrates that though there is growing literature on this subject, there is, at present, limited documentation, statistics and case studies to fully appreciate and understand the scope of this problem. Some guidance and tools are available; however, the success of these tools is not yet clear. Some key recommendations include gender mainstreaming and participatory Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programmes; engagement and consultation with girls and women of all ages and backgrounds from the outset; improving understan…
