Immigrant Organisations and Cooperative Work with Parents: Potential, Structural Conditions, Development Opportunities.

Policy Brief | February 2014

Migrant organisations are important actors in non-school education because they act as intermediaries between educational institutions and parents with a migration background. Their potential, however, is not nearly fully exploited. The Policy Brief provides an overview of the structure of migrant organisations and their role in cooperative work with parents. It identifies overall conditions and approaches to further develop cooperative work with parents and recommends, among other things, strengthening the role of migrant organisations as providers of standard educational services.
