Abstract

Contributing to the shaping of education and migration as a distinct field of research, this forward-looking Research Handbook explores cross-cutting questions on the range of challenges facing education systems, migrant children and students today. Covering an impressive range of local, national and educational contexts, this Research Handbook explores diverse case studies, educational initiatives, approaches and policies that have been developed to support migrant and mobile students, educational professionals and schools. Chapters offer a broad understanding of the multifaceted nature of global migration today, exploring varied theoretical and methodological perspectives, and examining the educational challenges and opportunities presented by migration. The Research Handbook ultimately stresses the importance of interdisciplinary research into the complex phenomenon of global migration and its impact on education systems and the educational trajectories of migrant children. Students and scholars in the fields of education, migration, childhood studies and globalization studies will find this Research Handbook an invaluable reference. Its wide range of case studies on different educational provisions designed to support migrant children in schools will further benefit educational practitioners and policymakers.
