Irelands' Immigrant Children
Culleton, Jonathan
Child Care in Practice, v10 n3 p265-270 Jul 2004
In industrialised Western nations generally, and European Union (EU) nations particularly, immigration is an issue of considerable concern and debate. In the EU, however, discussion of immigration has tended to centre on a number of policy issues, from reliance on welfare provision, to labour force participation, to healthcare provision, to cultural issues. It would appear inevitable that, in the longer term, exclusion of the interests of immigrant children by policy-makers will lead to difficulties for the individual children, and on a societal level. This article examines some of these difficulties in relation to the various groups of immigrant children in Ireland.
