Promoting integration of migrants and refugees in and through education: Toolkit

Education unions are defending the right to learn and to teach of newcomers. They develop advocacy to promote more inclusive schools in the context of increasingly diverse communities and in reaction to the rise of populist anti-immigration political forces. These strategies and practical actions are now compiled in a new toolkit by Education International. The aim of the publication is to give practitioners concrete, hands-on recommendations and advice that will help them contribute to making education more inclusive and an effective right for all children.

This toolkit aims to build on these experiences and facilitate education unions to develop their work in this area. It also assists unions by exploring the issues around integrating migrants and refugees in education and sharing what others have been doing in this domain.

This toolkit will support both unions that have not yet been active in this domain and those that are willing to further develop their activities with regards to migrants and refugees. It can be used at different levels of the organisation
