Ad Hoc Conference on the Education of Migrants: Introductory Report on Theme I, "The Position of the Immigrant and His Family on Arrival in the Host Country" (Strasbourg, France, November 5-8, 1974).
Theme I of the Ad Hoc Conference on the Education of Migrants was "measures to improve the position of the immigrant and his family at the time of arrival in the host country (including measures taken in the sending country on behalf of those intending to emigrate), primarily in respect of their educational circumstances". This report presents an initial reflection of the theme itself. Major topics briefly discussed are: (1) the migrant families; (2) separation of families; (3) reunion of families; (4) the school in relation to the family; and (5) the school as a cultural factor. Recommendations are given for: government action; research; information; and education. The appendices include the: (1) abridged text of the Resolution concerning the situation of migrant workers and their families, adopted by the European Ministers of Labour (Rome, November 1972); and (2) Resolution (72) 18 of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe on methods of compiling statistics on the international migration of workers.
