Final Report - EDUMIGROM (Ethnic Differences in Education and Diverging Prospects for Urban Youth in an Enlarged Europe)

Project ID: 217384
Funded under: FP7-SSH

Abstract

This is the final report of the EDUMIGROM project which was funded under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The objective of the project was to study how ethnic differences in education contribute to the diverging prospects for minority ethnic youth and their peers in multiethnic urban settings.

The report notes that the results of the EDUMIGROM project has led to a rather gloomy picture about the lives, opportunities, and future perspectives of ethnic minority adolescents in Europe. Our findings revealed that the prevailing systems of schooling work toward producing and maintaining their disadvantages in access to quality education while tend to devalue their performance on cultural grounds and consequently divert their paths in advancement. Furthermore, minority students' daily life at school proved to be deeply imbued by extensive practices of 'othering' that lead to frequent endangerment of their identity development while concurrently render a powerful institutionalisation of curtailed notions and patterns of inclusionary citizenship.
