Vidur Chopra's research is centered in the discipline of Sociology and draws from cross-disciplinary thinking at the intersections of education, forced migration and citizenship studies. His work focuses on examining the ways in which education enables global, local and transnational understandings of membership and belonging for youth affected and displaced by conflict. His work has two substantive strands: One focuses on the inclusion of refugee youth within national systems of education and its subsequent implications for policy and classroom-level practice; the second strand focuses on understanding the ways conflict-affected youth and adolescents come to civic understandings of themselves, their communities and the unequal structures that deeply circumscribe their present and future opportunities. He has a wide range of research, policy and practice-based experiences within humanitarian and development contexts with the UN (UNHCR and UNICEF) and NGOs in East Africa, the Middle East and South Asia.
