"The Immigration Problem" and European Education Reforms: From the Education of Migrants' Children to Intercultural Education
Kowalczyk, Jamie
European Education, v42 n4 p5-24 Win 2010-2011
This article looks at the continuities and discontinuities within the European discourse of education reforms and immigrants, starting with the "education of migrants' children" to the promotion of "intercultural education" as a means of integrating the immigrant student. This analysis explores the ways in which a process of abjection is engaged within the discourse that serves to refound the boundaries of the European cosmopolitan through the fabrication of the immigrant student as an object of reform. That is, while European reforms call for the inclusion of the immigrant student, the discourse also excludes through its very production of human kinds who need to be integrated into cosmopolitanism. (Contains 13 notes.)
