Child-centered inclusive education | What works and what can be improved?

Home Eventi - CESIE ETS Child-centered inclusive education | What works and what can be improved?

The EU has stated that it is “fully committed to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which calls for a world in which every child grows up free from violence and exploitation, has his/her rights protected and access to quality education and healthcare” (European Commission 2017, 4). From the very beginning of addressing migrant children in education, the EU thus promotes the rights of children in its documents. This is underlined by the national governments in their documents too, stating that the status of children and minors should always take precedence over their status as foreigners or non-documented. Therefore, all children and minors should have equal rights, regardless of their migratory status. However, integration often hinges on legal status. This is especially true for vulnerable groups, such as asylum seekers and unaccompanied children that can find themselves disconnected from important social structures, like housing or community support for long periods of time, while waiting for their legal situation to be resolved.

With this in mind we invite you (policy makers, professionals, teachers) to discuss together about the inclusion of diverse groups of migrant children in education and at a policy level, by adopting a child-centred approach. It approaches the children’s wellbeing and needs by recognising them as agents and active participants in social interactions and as autonomous individuals.

We will present you key findings from the EU-wide research on the integration of migrant children and the main recommendations developed, and will seek your inputs in regards to what works in Italy and how recommendations can be integrated.
