Asociaciones de migrantes africanos: educación y formación = African migrant associations: education and training

Based on the data obtained in a survey of 206 representatives of African immigrant associations, nine life histories and 54 interviews carried out with representatives of these associations, this article analyzes their educational reality from different points of view. First, we establish the importance the association leaders give to education (the role that education played in their migration processes and in the associations they lead). Second, we take a close look at their educational level and training. And finally, we analyze the training activities promoted by these associations or the activities in which they are involved (collaborating with other associations, institutions or services). Concerning these activities, we analyze their types (topics covered: language, religion, labor market integration, etc.), and orientation (tendency to multiculturalism and collaboration or distance from formal education institutions). ​
