Education and Migration in Comparative Perspective

As part of its Migration and Education initiative, the SSRC's Migration Program assembled a working group to focus on the educational philosophy and institutional arrangements and practices that shape educational pathways for immigrant and second generation students, as well as affecting their prospects for socioeconomic and civic integration, across a number of countries. The group met in London in 2005 to deliver working papers, some of which will be published in an edited volume, and several members, including SSRC Program Director Jennifer Holdaway, edited a special issue of the Teachers College Record (2009) reviewing the existing research as well as highlighting some of the difficulties of comparative studies.
