A Green Paper adopted by the Commission on 3 July 2008 opens the debate on how education policies may better address the challenges posed by immigration and internal EU mobility flows. The presence of significant numbers of migrant children has substantial implications for European education systems.

Interested parties are invited to make their views known about:

  • the policy challenge,
  • good policy responses to this challenge,
  • the possible role of the European Union in supporting Member States,
  • their views on the future of Directive 77/486/EEC

The consultation on the issues above will be open until 31 December 2008.
