RefuEdu Project - Part II

Exchange of knowledge and good practice to enhance the education of refugee and asylum seeking youth

RefuEdu Project – Part II:


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 through this project. 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.

Project activities:

- transnational mutual learning activities where stakeholders will learn and exchange about good practices in refugee education,
- a policy and practice Handbook on refugee and asylum seeker youth’ education with indicators to track the adoption and implementation of the recommendations, and
- an international dissemination conference.

The objectives of the project are:

- to facilitate the exchange of experience and good practice in refugee education among different groups of stakeholders (school staff, policy makers, NGOs, governmental organizations, refugee and asylum seeking youth) and among different countries;
- to generate mutual learning effects in refugee education;
- to increase the ability of stakeholders to apply functioning methods and strategies for the support of the education of refugee and asylum seeking youth across European countries;
- to increase multi-stakeholder and transnational cooperation in the education of refugee and asylum seeking youth;

These objectives will lead in the long term to equal and equitable opportunities in education for refugee and asylum seeking youth in Europe.
