Education and Migration

This NESSE Report addresses the nature, causes and possible remedies for the educational disadvantages experienced by migrant students in EU schools. Migrant students (or synonymously students or pupils/children of migration background or minority students) are disadvantaged in terms of enrolment in type of school, duration of
attending school, indicators of achievement, drop-out rates and types of school
diploma reached. The topic of education and migration is relevant in the context of
European economic development, social cohesion and the stabilisation of democratic
cultures. The report presents explanations for the given situation and elaborates
policies, programmes and measures to improve the situation.
