Abstract

The paper analyses some results of the pilot survey of experts on social work with international migrants conducted by a Russian and Swiss research team in 2017 in the framework of a joint project. The focus of the survey is the present situation and prospects of education for international migrants. As stated by experts from Russia, Switzerland and Germany, there are some social factors that cause a widening gap between the existing public and private educational programs and projects for migrants, institutional resources and capacities, on the one hand, and changing requirements, needs of migrants’ communities with regard to education, on the other hand. These factors include: changes in the social structure of migrants, politicization of global migration challenges, diversification of non-national communities and groups, digitalization of the sphere of education, transformation of self-perception and self-identification of migrants. The authors conclude that there is a demand for new educational programs for non-marginalized groups of non-citizens, which would take into account their growing needs for professional, economic, legal knowledge.
