Migration and Education

Migrants and their children now constitute more than half of the student body in many urban schools and post-secondary educational institutions in Canada, Europe, and the United States--a situation that challenges traditional approaches to preparing young people for employment and citizenship. The SSRC's Migration Program has initiated and collaborated in several major studies of the educational needs of immigrant and second generation students, along with institutional responses to those needs. Our activities have included convening working groups of experts from various backgrounds to review existing research and make recommendations; giving out fellowships to support further study; and producing edited volumes, journal articles, and other scholarly publications.
