The empirical assessments and findings of PERAE represent the basis for a transnational exchange of good practice and experience on an international and EU level to enhance the education of refugee and asylum seeking youth. The findings compiled within national and a transnational comparative report will contribute to the initiation of transnational sharing of experience and good practice and to the development of policy and practice tools.
