DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES

In order to enhance the pivotal role of the University of Sassari within the social, cultural and economic development of North Sardinia and to foster dialogue between research and local stake-holders, the University is developing an experimental project to build educational pathways for young foreign refugees.
The project will be managed by a group of experts appointed by UNISS, chaired by professor Silvia Serreli.
Just like 2016, also in 2017-2018 meetings were organized to gather together youngsters hosted by CAS and SPRAR shelters, teachers and representatives of CPIA Adult Education Centers of Sassari, to develop tailor-made educational pathways and new ways to organize shelter services.

Activities
The cultural impact that the project provides to national migration policies and the integration of migrants in the local social fabric, offers an organized educational framework involving several stake-holders and experts in the field of migration (Prefecture, Police headquarters, local institutions, schools, associations and social coops).

RESULTS AND IMPACT

The educational pathways developed by the University of Sassari facilitate the access of young foreing refugees to school and university facilities. All the refugees who joined the project live in North Sardinia and are hosted by CAS and SPRAR shelters.
