Abstract

The project started from the observation that children of immigrant origin - defined using various but recognisably similar systems in different countries - are a category at risk in terms of social exclusion in Europe. National policies aimed at supporting these children have not been completely successful in countering the risk factor. There was no shared system for evaluating policy outcomes in different countries, especially in light of the specific needs and rights of children.
The project analysed national definitions, indicators, and evaluation systems, both in conceptual and in statistical terms. It also analysed specific policy responses in each country, especially in the educational sphere (innovation, training).
At the same time, the project reviewed classification and definition systems for the well-being of children, developing a new definition of well-being for children of immigrant origin according to a hierarchy of basic indicators that could be used for evaluating the condition of children and targeting specific policy.
