What a great approach to teaching talent management! Very timely and needed!
My colleagues and I published several papers and produced other materials highlighting the obstacles refugees face in finding meaningful employment. The materials include a short video:
A guide for employers (we are just finalizing a global version of the guide):
And a few articles:

Szkudlarek, B., Nardon, L., & Toh, S. M. (2021). A temporal perspective on refugee employment–Advancing HRM theory and practice. Human Resource Management Journal.
Perhaps these could be of interest.
All the very best with your exciting course!

I think a critical approach to talent management is interesting and necessary. See, for example, a recent critical review of the literature on talent management (Kwon & Jang, 2021).
Furthermore, I would place talent management in the broader context of HR differentiation taking into account 3 levels of analysis (intended, actual, perceived) (Marescaux et al., 2021) and different dimensions (Piasecki, 2020).
