Project PRESS (an acronym of the Provision of Refugee Education and Support Scheme) is a research-based project that aims at producing direct actions geared towards the refugees’ educational support and their long-term educational empowerment. Specifically, the project aims at producing ethnographic insights on the educational, linguistic and communication needs, priorities and expectations of refugee children, youth and adults currently residing in Greece (axis 1 of the Project) that will feed back into a series of educational actions and integration interventions (axes 2 and 3 of the Project). Axis 2 aims at the linguistic and cultural adjustment and integration of refugee children, youth and adults through non-formal and informal learning interventions and axis 3 focuses on awareness-raising, provision of support services and targeted interventions for the long-term educational empowerment of refugees in Greek society. The duration of the first phase of implementation of the project, which consists of 24 actions, is 19 months (June 2016 to December 2017). The Academic Director of the project is Professor George Androulakis and the Project Coordinators are: Ivi Daskalaki (Axis 1), Sofia Tsioli (Axis 2) and Anna Apostolidou (Axis 3). The online toolkit includes:
  • Research outcomes
