Despite policies of inclusion, compulsory education for all, and attempts at establishing multiculturalist arrangements in schools across Europe, minority ethnic students face segregation and discrimination that reinforce, perpetuate, and often even deepen their socio-economic disadvantages. This is the overall conclusion of a comparative research project conducted in nine European countries led by Associate Professor Julia Szalai, a sociologist and recognized expert on Roma and minority rights.
Fundamental rights: challenges and achievements in 2010. The Annual report from the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights draws on EDUMIGROM's 2010 Ethnic Differences in Education in Hungary: Survey Report, authored by Julia Szalai and Vera Messing, with contributions from Anna Szasz.
The last Newsletter shares the latest updates on the project, focusing mainly on the project`s closing conference, introduces the personal reflections of project colleagues involved in EDUMIGROM’s fieldwork and spotlights the recent publications.
