Since the school year 2016/2017, 150 migrant children have been enrolled in seven primary schools in greater Belgrade with the support of UNICEF. In early May 2017, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development issued a ‘Guideline on the Integration of all Migrant Children in the Education System’, which regulates in detail the pupils’ enrolment and the support they are to receive in the process of their inclusion in the school system. The adoption of this Guideline is very important, in view of the fact that in 2017 over 2,000 migrant children of school age lived in Serbia.The schooling of the migrant children has been a bright example. 95% of the children living in the various refugee, transit, and asylum centres in 2018 were attending school.
