School - a basis for successful inclusion

This publication is based on interviews with researchers and practitioners with extensive experience and knowledge of the field of integration and inclusion of newly arrived children and young people in school.

Authors: Nordic Welfare Centre

Between 2011 and 2016, nearly 200 000 children and young people arrived in the Nordic countries as asylum seekers, either unaccompanied or with their families. The most important platform for inclusion and integration of newly arrived children and young people is school.

Newly arrived children and young people must have the same opportunities as their peers to become established in the employment market in the future, to earn a steady income and play an active part in society. There is every reason, therefore, to mobilise and to study what has been learned from research and practical experience to see how we can create suitable conditions for learning and inclusion in school.
