How have European education systems responded to the large number of children and young people fleeing Ukraine? What policies and measures have been developed to support Ukrainian students across Europe?
The Russian invasion of Ukraine forced many people to leave their home and search for protection in neighbouring European countries, amongst them a large proportion of children and young people. The host countries and their education systems now have a responsibility to respond to this situation by providing refugees with various support measures to facilitate their rapid and successful integration.
Two new Eurydice reports investigate the key policies and measures put in place by top-level education authorities across Europe that aim to assist schools and higher education institutions in integrating and helping Ukrainian children and refugee learners. Together the reports can contribute to informing and supporting European education systems in their endeavour to ensure that learners from Ukraine have access to education, training and support that correspond to their needs, aspirations and emotional well-being.
