|Samenvatting||This article discusses restorative play in refugee situations. There is little literature devoted to how children who live in refugee camps perceive the reasons that led them into exile and react to their new environment. This lack of literature is not surprising given the instability of this type of environment and the difficulty of following the same refugee children across extended periods of time. However, several relief organizations have been actively involved in a global effort to understand and to address the specific needs of refugee children. Throughout the past 20 years, an increasing awareness has progressively emerged that children in refugee camps have other important needs beyond the obvious material ones of food, shelter, and medicine. Play is one of these less obvious – but important – needs.|
