About this book

This book compares the educational experiences of adolescents from a variety of 'visible' ethnic minority groups across Europe. Focusing on underprivileged urban contexts, it reveals the structural inequalities, as well as the often conflicting inter-ethnic relations which develop in classrooms, playgrounds and larger communities.

Reviews

“This book … sets out to shed new light on the European educational experiences of those who are ‘visible different.’ … this book will undoubtedly be of use and interest to a range of academic and policy audiences. It provides a useful introduction to the current key issues in European education, with the country studies acting as excellent critical overviews. The book also provides important new empirical data, which will undoubtedly provide further research with strong foundations.” (Rachel Humphris, European Education, Vol. 48 (1), March, 2016)
