Education as a tool for the economic integration of migrants

Language: EN

Posted by Rumen HALACHEV

It is organized in five sections:

  • In the first section, we look at the educational attainment of first and second generation immigrants in Europe, as compared to the US.
  • In the second section, we consider how language skills affect the educational outcomes and the integration of immigrants.
  • In the next two sections, we investigate how the organization of schools and the characteristics of teachers influence the educational outcomes of both children with an immigrant background and native children.
  • In the final section, we discuss whether higher education can affect the attitudes of the native population towards immigrants and thereby favour their integration.
