IMISCOE is happy to announce the recent publication of a special issue of Comparative Migration Studies on 'Family involvement and educational success of the children of immigrants in Europe'. The special issue brings together five papers that focus on family involvement and the educational success of children of immigrants.
The contributions describe various ways of family involvement, highlight reasons for it in familial discourse as well as how children perceive it and how it effects their educational achievements. Moreover, some contributions in this special issue extend the current discussion about family involvement by investigating simultaneously the supporting behavior of parents and elderly siblings. Contributors apply rather different methods and datasets to examine the role played by family involvement for educational success by children of immigrants.
