An outlook on Migrant and Refugee children’s access to Education in France


The paper aims at analysing the situation of migrant and refugee children’s access to education in France. While a fundamental right, guaranteed both by international and domestic law, in practice access to education for migrant and refugee children are limited by strict immigration policies and the French educational system, which fails to include migrant and refugee children by addressing their specific needs. The paper highlights how the lack of educational opportunities at the upper-secondary level negatively impact unaccompanied minors, who are often beyond the scope of national compulsory education. The paper concludes by providing policy recommendations focusing on monitoring & evaluation indicators to improve migrant and refugee children’s access to education..
