Área/s de conocimientoCiencias de la Educación
Migration has been a constant theme in human life throughout history, until it began to be considered at the beginning of the century as one of the most important problems in the world from a social, economic, politic and cultural point of view. This shift influences economic growth and social welfare as much as in emigrant as in immigrant countries. Nowadays, 200 million people are living outside their country of origin, something that consists of nearly 3% of the total world population. In the last years, and in parallel with the economic crisis, it has not been only considered as something cyclical and temporal, but it is also being recognized as one of the most important themes of the century, becoming one of the biggest causes for concern to this developed society. In this sense, the World Bank deals with the migration matter from a development perspective where Spain, because of its tradition and actual state, plays an important role. It is also a fundamental aspect of globalization and countries development, in which official organizations and institutions must implicate developing active politic proposals related to an improvement of these citizens quality of life. In this sense, the project Migration of Romanians in Spain: social, cultural and educative intervention lead by the GdI: Culture, Society and Education from Camilo Jose University and in collaboration with the Ecological University of Bucharest of Romania Teacher Training Department is tending to establish some strategic lines of action to help plural and socially responsible education aimed at forming children and immigrant families which are in our educative centers classrooms.
