1. Golubeva, Maria. "School desegregation measures in the Netherlands and in the Baltic States: A cross-European comparison of education policy discourses" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the 55th Annual Conference of the Comparative and International Education Society, Fairmont Le Reine Elizabeth, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, <Not Available>. 2019-08-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p493513_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Schools in the Netherlands are commonly described as 'white' and 'black' implying schools attended by the majority/ Dutch origin population and those attended mostly by students from immigrant families. In the Baltic states of Estonia and Latvia, schools are divided into 'Estonian'/ 'Latvian' and 'Russian' - i.e. attended mostly by students from the large Russian-speaking minority. However, the political and cultural status of separate schools attended by minorities is dramatically different in the Netherlands and in the Baltic States. Political discourses concerning segregated schools are also vastly different. Nevertheless, in both contexts there are organisations pursuing desegregation projects with the purpose of fostering a more intercultural approach and promoting equal citizenship for members of all groups. The paper will compare the main characteristics of political discourses about segregation and desegregation in the Netherlands and in the Baltic States and will analyse the impact these discourses have on the policy-makers' approach to the issues of desegregation.
