The Effect of Early Childhood Education and Care Services on the Social Integration of Refugee Families

Devising appropriate policy measures for the integration of refugees is high on the agenda of many governments. This paper focuses on the social integration of families seeking asylum in Germany between 2013 and 2016. Exploiting differences in services availability across counties as an exogenous source of variation, we evaluate the effect of early education attendance by refugee children on their ...

Ihre Sprachkenntnisse sind besser, die Arbeitsmarktorientierung höher und sie vermissen ihr Herkunftsland weniger. Wie dieser Bericht auf ...
