SIRIUS 2.0 – POLICY NETWORK ON MIGRANT EDUCATION
SIRIUS 2.0 capitalises the work SIRIUS has been carrying on migrant education since 2012 when the 3-year Life Long Learning funded project SIRIUS was kicked-off. The project takes the work of SIRIUS to the next level of sustainability. Building on the practical learning and tools designed from 2012-2016, the SIRIUS 2.0 uses these and other EU tools to concretely impact policy reform agendas at national, local/regional and, wherever possible, at European level.
The project promotes co-operation between different stakeholders, supports inclusive policy development and implementation at different governance levels and facilitates the integration of children and young people with migration background in education. SIRIUS 2.0 performs a knowledge brokerage function by providing evidence from research and practice for policy-making and by informing research about the unmet needs of policymakers and practitioners.
The overall objective of the project is to feed the best evidence and practice into the major education policy debates by mobilising mainstream migration and education activities and building the capacity of migrant and grassroots education initiatives.
SIRIUS 2.0 is co-funded by the European Commission, DG EAC
