Country Analyses on Education and Ethnic Relations

Period: April 2008 – October 2008

The EDUMIGROM project began with the preparation of two sets of macro-level comprehensive studies in each target country, one on education, and another one on ethnic relations. A total of 16 background reports were completed, within this 14 country studies (two each in the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia) and 2 mini comparatives (‘Nordic’ reports focusing on Denmark and Sweden). 

The first set of studies (Education in domestic contexts) describe the functioning of individual educational systems, their financing, quality control, mechanisms of differentiation inherent to the respective educational systems, the situation of ethnic minority youth in education. The reports provide an overview of educational policies aiming at ethnic minority youth, as well as the state of the art of research and public debates on ethnic minority youth in education. 

The second set of country reports (Ethnic relations in domestic contexts) provides a general overview of the workings of inter-ethnic relations and the state of minority ethnic groups in the given country. It describes overt and covert forms of differentiation along ethnic lines. The country studies introduce the broad context of mechanisms of ‘othering’, ‘minoritisation’ and/or ‘racialisation’, and show how such processes often divert the working of the welfare state to the detriment of minority ethnic groups. The papers introduce prevailing minority rights regulations, issues of representation and matters of ethnicity in the context of the welfare state in the individual national contexts. The studies provide an overview of public debates and national policies that concern minority ethnic groups as well a state of the art in research on inter-ethnic relations and minorities.
