The project EDINA - EDucation of International Newly Arrived migrant pupils - has been developed by Emmanuelle le Pichon-Vorstman and Venhar Sariaslan. It brought together policy makers, schools and researchers from Finland (Helsinki), Belgium (Ghent) and The Netherlands (Rotterdam and Utrecht). This project finished succesfully in September 2018. In September 2019 a follow up of EDINA has started, with, partially, new partners. This new project brings together policy makers, schools and reserarchers from Belgium (Ghent and Liège), the United Kingdom (Leeds), Spain (Oviedo) and The Netherlands (Rotterdam and Utrecht).
This EDINA site has the objective of supporting teachers and schools with newcomer pupils (primary and secondary education) in their practice and policy. After all, successful care of these pupils is of great importance for the rest of their school career.
