Immigrant children in Europe: what have we learnt to date?
April 21, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Speaker(s): Dr Michal Molcho
Affiliation: Health Sciences
Organised by: Whitaker Institute
The issue of migration has captured headlines in recent years. With the civil war in Syria and the civil unrest in North Africa continuing, many have fled to Europe seeking refuge. While not much is known about the new wave of refugees, data collected among settled immigrants can shed a light on the future of the newcomers to Europe. Based on data collected in the Health Behaviours in School-Aged Children study, this seminar will present the knowledge that has been accumulating about school-going immigrant children in Europe, both first and second generation. The presentation will focus on prevalence, risks and resilience factors among immigrant children in Europe.
