Migrant Children and Communities in a Transforming Europe

    Project: Research

    Project Details


    The overall objective of the project is to stimulate the inclusion of diverse groups of migrant children by adopting a childcentred approach to their integration at the educational and policy level. The research project aims at comprehensive examination of contemporary integration processes of migrant children in order to empower them. The project starts from the fact that European countries and their education systems encounter manifold challenges due to growing ethnic, cultural, linguistic diversity and thereby aims at:
    1) Identifying existing measures for the integration of migrant children at the regional and local level through secondary data analysis;
    2) Analysis of the social impacts of these integration programmes through case studies in ten countries applying qualitative and quantitative childcentred research;
    3) Development of integration measures and identification of social investment particularly in educational policies and school systems that aim to empower children.
