http://www.wolfpublishers.com/book.php?id=1141 Eurydice statistics (Based on Eurostat) cover refugee children under immigrant children (see Report: Integrating Immigrant Children into Schools in Europe. Brussels 2004). The proportion of foreign nationals aged under 15 in the total population of those aged under 15 at 1 January 2001 is (some examples): BE (6,5 %), CZ (0,8 %), DK (5,8 %), DE (10,2 %), ES (2,1 %), FR (4,0 %), LU (39,3 %), HU (0,6 %), NL (4,2 %), AT (10,5 %), SI (1,1 %), FI (1,8 %), SE (5,2 %), UK (2,5 %), NO (3,5 %). The number of asylum applications per 1000 inhabitants (asylum ratio) of 2002 is (corresponding examples): BE (1,82), CZ (0,83), DK (1,11), DE (0,86), ES (0,16), FR (0,86), LU (2,35), HU (0,63), NL (1,16), AT (4,9), SI (0,33), FI (0,66), SE (3,71), UK (1,19), NO (3,28). Comparison of the two numbers show, that proportion of refugee children among immigrant children in AT, SE and NO are significantly and in BE, LU, UK and NL higher than on average. Education should serve as a bridge to participation of non-EU member states long-term residents, including migrants, refugees and asylum seekers in the host society. Whether the outcome is successful will depend to a significant extent on instruction in schools and whether they succeed in acquiring the basic skills and competences. As children cannot be blamed for their language deficiency, host states have the responsibility for overcoming language barriers in and through education. An important barrier to overcome is the first language of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers that is nearly always not the language of instruction. Most of the time they do not have any knowledge of the language of instruction upon arrival in a EU Member State. Specific integration measures are provision of interpreters in schools, school-based support measures such as compensation for language needs (e.g. teaching the host country language of instruction; programs to introduce very young children to the language of instruction), school-based recognition of non-EU member states long-term residents’ culture (e.g. measures to support the language and culture of origin), etc…
