On October 15th, YouthProAktiv attended a public hearing on topic “Migration and Education: humanity and rights or fences and hostility?”.
When it comes to the social inclusion of migrants in the EU, most of the challenges faced are not legal, but also societal. Migrants often encounter numerous obstacles that prevent them from participating fully in society. They experience difficulties in accessing services like education and social local activities, making them more likely to be living in poverty and social exclusion than non-migrants.
Key challenge is how to ensure an engine education and not exclude migrant children from a healthy environment and classroom surrounding.
How to make Europe a more socially inclusive continent? How to offer qualitative, socially included and equitable education for all – locals and asylum seekers ? What we can change in order to approve the human and rights-based approach to migration, asylum and education ? These and a lot of more questions where discussed at the European Parliament.
Offering a quality education is a key role for the development of the migrants. European institutions and services for social-educational support play a crucial factor in offering equal, qualitative and inclusive education for migrants and locals. The EU support is key to enabling society activities that directly respond to the need of migrants, including at the local level where most social inclusion efforts take place.
