Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Citation (Scopus)


the essay aims at drawing a lesson from the seven articles (multiple case studies), carried out in different places and timeframes in Italy and France, selected to be included in the special issue. As sociologists of education, we have to learn much about what is happening in mixed classrooms as a result of increasing multiculturalism and changing attitudes. The points we may rise from the essays are: 1) Economic and social status affecting ethnic diversity in schools; 2) The importance of “timespace” factors, 3) Where is educational discrimination and how to detect it, 4) The agency of second generations and “new families”, 5) intercultural approach in multi-ethnic schools.
