The project researches the educational integration of refugee and asylum-seeking children in the EU and Balkans by developing common standards and sharing best practices in programme development and evaluation, with a specific focus on the needs of children who have been victims of crime. Furthermore, the project explores the existing understanding of »integration« from the critical position, as in the public discourse integration usually means adapting of »minority« to majority population and society, which is, by our position definitely a process of inequality. Through the implementation of concrete project, it will be a starting point to influence the reformulation of the understanding of the concept of »integration« as a two way process of adaptation, justice and solidarity. One of the deliverables of the project is the Handbook "Integrating Refugee and Asylum-Seeking Children in the Educational Systems of EU Member States", which brings reports from all EU countries as well as from selected countries of South East Europe (Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina).
