We thank the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for generously funding the research on refugee youth. The research team would also like to acknowledge the cooperation of the Polisario Delegation in Madrid, and particularly the assistance of Abdullah and Sidi Ahmed who approved the research effort and put us in contact with the local coordinators of the Vacaciones en Paz programme. We would like to thank local coordinators of the various NGOs in Madrid who put us in contact with the host families in their districts. Our deepest appreciation goes to the families who trusted us enough to let us into their homes and who treated us with characteristic hospitality while we spoke with their host children. Finally, we acknowledge the patience and generosity of the Sahrawi children who agreed to participate in this study and who made the research an enjoyable experience.
