Our Vision

SIRIUS is the international leading Policy Network on Migrant Education: the EU’s privileged adviser on these topics since 2012 and an independent network (International not for profit association) since 2017 including all major education stakeholders.

SIRIUS is a membership-based organisation that promotes the social inclusion of children and young people with migrant background by fostering their effective access to the universal right to education.

Our vision is a world where the universal right to education is fully implemented and discrimination at all levels of the educational system is eradicated. We strive for pupils from a migrant background to achieve the same educational standards as their native peers.
