Description

Education and Immigration comprises six reports that emerged from an EU funded comparative research project into the challenges posed to national education systems by immigration and its associated issues and problems. The immigration-related education policies and initiatives of six countries (the UK, France, Germany, Finland, Greece and Israel) are explained, examined and compared. The book clearly delineates the historical, legal and sociological contexts of the various strategies, and how far these have been adhered to.

Reviews

'The book's strength lies in the detailed description of the six states' own peculiar ways of dealing with immigration and accommodation of cultural diversity'. - Educational Review
