The Aspirations of Young Migrant Workers in Western Europe. Educational Studies and Documents No. 21.
De Montvalon, Robert
This study is an attempt to describe and interpret the aspirations of young migrant workers living in western Europe, and concludes with proposals for research and for action. It is noted that the study has its limitations, dictated by the subject itself and by the method of work. The method described for collecting data involved the Secretariat of Unesco's request to a number of nongovernmental organizations in nine countries (in Europe) to undertake surveys on various aspects of the situation of young migrant workers, the results of which were compiled. Information is presented in four major sections which are intended to (1) help to bring to light the nature and meaning of the aspirations of young migrant workers, thereby setting up signposts for future research workers; and (2) enable proposals to be framed concerning the action to be undertaken or developed. The four sections cover the people involved, their aspirations, outcome of the analysis, and proposals. References are appended. (WL)
