Migrant, Roma and Post-Colonial Youth in Education Across Europe

Edited by Julia Szalai, Senior Research Fellow at CEU’s Center for Policy Studies, and Claire Schiff, Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Bordeaux, Migrant, Roma and Post-Colonial Youth in Education Across Europe compares the educational experiences of adolescents from a variety of 'visible' ethnic minority groups such as Roma in Central Europe, post-colonial minorities in France and England, Turks and Arabs in Germany, and recent immigrants in Scandinavia. Focusing on underprivileged urban contexts, the book reveals the structural inequalities and also the often conflict-ridden inter-ethnic relations which develop in classrooms, playgrounds and larger communities. Ranging from explorations of quasi-ghettos to experiments in racial and ethnic integration, the encountered situations shed light on the challenges of managing diversity in local communities and on an all-societal level.
