Final conference of the project “Migrant Children and Communities in a Transforming Europe” (Ljubljana, Slovenia)

On the 2-3 June in Ljubljana, Slovenia, DYPALL Network took part in the final conference of the project “Migrant Children and Communities in a Transforming Europe” (MiCreate) where almost 80 researchers from all over Europe had a chance to share the outcomes of their research on the inclusiveness of migrant children. It was also an opportunity to close this 3-years project, summarise its outcomes and plan eventual follow-up activities.

All the outcomes of the project are available on the website of the project (, among others:

MiCreate project aims to stimulate the inclusion of diverse groups of migrant children by adopting a child-centred approach to migrant children integration on the educational and policy levels. It has been implemented as a Horizon 2020 project by a consortium of 15 European partners led by Znanstveno-raziskovalno središče Koper, and was based on field research in 10 countries and tens of educational facilities. The biggest innovation of the project was the CHILD-CENTRED APPROACH in all research activities.

What is a child-centred approach? It is a research methodology, that:

  • Focuses on children (not on children as future adults), with the focus on their well-being and participation,
  • Focus on how children experience and describe their own lives, what is important to them, how they understand integration/well-being and what is important to them in this process,
  • Includes these children’s voices and perspectives in the methodology, research, policy recommendations, and learning materials of the project.
