Welcome to the first Newsletter of a research program on Ethnic Differences in Education and Diverging Prospects for
Urban Youth in an Enlarged Europe (EDUMIGROM). Launched in March 2008 and funded within the 7th Framework
Programme of the European Commission, the initiative brings together ten leading universities and institutes from
across Europe for a three-year comparative investigation in ethnically diverse communities with second-generation
migrants and Roma. Since our inaugural event, we have made a great deal of progress. With this first Newsletter, we
present some of our activities and accomplishments to date. We also introduce several members of the EDUMIGROM
Consortium and offer a glimpse into the research currently underway.
