The multifaceted contributions in this book discuss both the classical and the more recent forms of migration. Illustrating the developments in various European countries and Australia as a ''classical immigration state'', they tackle these different forms of migration and investigate their divergent educational implications regarding identity, citizenship and language education. This book will be of essential interest for students and researchers interested in the current discourse on multicultural education.
