This chapter aims to deconstruct culturally relevant leadership (CRL) and social justice leadership (SJL) frameworks in newcomers’ education using the Foucauldian lens, based on extensive research on refugee and newcomers’ education and its leadership. The way the Foucauldian lens on enunciative fields will be utilized in this chapter draws on the proposition of its authors that implementing social justice policies in schools and that existing educational leadership theory (mostly developed in “Western” societies) cannot simply be adopted without revisiting and contextualized into all other world societies, rather a critical form of educational leadership is needed that grounds educators’ work in their cultural and social heritage and enables them to understand and carry out their responsibilities in the local educational field.
