The Nordic Council and Immigrant Education Policy.
Johnson, Kristi Planck
Cooperation among Scandinavian nations (Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Sweden) is important in order to develop an effective policy regarding the education of immigrants and refugees. Each of the Scandinavian countries has a definitive education policy for refugees and immigrants. However, cooperative efforts among the nations through the Nordic Inter-Parliamentary Union, the Nordic Council, and the Helsinki Agreement set no firm policy on refugee and immigrant education. Significant issues for policy makers to evaluate and consider in studying refugee and immigrant education include minority language, culture, and group development. Minority populations in Scandinavia, as in all of Europe, are expected to increase, creating a greater need for minority education at all levels that will benefit the whole of society. (AS)
