IMMERSE was born out of the concern for ensuring that Europe meets the challenges and the potential involved in the successful inclusion of all refugee and migrant children across the continent. Today, with the massive arrival of refugees from Ukraine, we renew our concern and determination for ensuring that schools, cities, regional authorities, and governments have the means and guidance to successfully integrate these children, and to care for and protect them. This is not only required to fulfil international obligations, but to ensure the well-being of these children. And it is also an investment with benefits for the whole society.
For this reason, we would like to share the resources and tools of the IMMERSE project to support schools, teachers, authorities, and other interested stakeholders in this endeavour. These resources and tools build on extensive research on this area, both within and beyond our project.
