The Second Meeting of the Group of National Experts brought together 58 participants representing 22 countries as well as international organisations and independent researchers. The meeting was designed to share experience, discuss additional research findings, hear about the progress made by other international organisations in the area and discuss the policy evaluation framework to be used for country reviews.
The OECD Secretariat reported on progress made in establishing a solid knowledge base for the review exercise. Country representatives reported on main findings from their national background reports and questionnaires on migrant education policies. The Group of National Experts commented on the usefulness of the preliminary knowledge base, noted related work by the OECD and other international organisations, and discussed alternatives for effective dissemination of project findings.
