Education for unaccompanied migrant children in Europe
A new policy memo published by EPIC (European Platform for Investing in Children) on approaches to education for unaccompanied migrant children in Europe.
The importance of migrant children’s access to education has been recognised by national and international governments. Hence, there are a variety of legal and policy frameworks applied at international, national and local levels in support of migrant children’s access to education (including unaccompanied minors).
However, despite these legal and policy provisions, access to both formal and non-formal education remains a challenge for many unaccompanied migrant children.
This EPIC policy memo, provides a brief overview of the national and school-level approaches to the inclusion of unaccompanied migrant children in Member State education systems. The memo also discusses wider policy responses to the integration of these children into the host societies.
The document is part of a series of short policy memos aimed at policymakers, researchers and practitioners and focusing on topics relevant to child welfare.
You can find the policy memo on the European Commission Publications catalogue.
