Council of Europe, Strasbourg (France). Documentation Center for Education in Europe.
The 9th session of the Ad Hoc Conference on the Education of Migrants had 3 themes. Theme I was "measures to improve the position of immigrants and their families, primarily in respect of their educational circumstances, at the time of arrival in the host country." The second theme was "measures to secure satisfactory educational provision before and during the host country's compulsory schooling period". Theme III was "measures to secure the satisfactory provision of opportunities for vocational and technical training and general education for adults and adolescents". This report presents the conclusions and recommendations of the conference for each theme. Recommendations for Theme I are in the areas of social conditions, information, education in and out of school, research and multilateral context. Some overall recommendations are: (1) encourage bilateral and multilateral cooperation between the host and emigration countries with the aim of promoting exchanges between civil servants and social workers concerned with migration problems; (2) encourage the award of study grants on the same conditions as to other children so as to enable migrants' children to pursue their secondary education; and (3) improve the system for providing information on research with regard to migration.
