Aims and objectives:
The main aim of the project is to explore how the intersection of gender and ethnic stereotyping produces forms of exclusion and marginalization as experienced by young migrant women in the context of secondary education, and to identify the gaps between mainstream integration measures and young migrant women’s needs using a critical gender perspective. The project also aims to develop policy recommendations aimed at improving the quality of existing structures and services in the educational context to reflect the different needs of young migrant women.
