This session will comprise of two different components. The first part will focus on conceptualizing and reflecting on intercultural education within Finland and beyond. Specifically, I will problematise my own research and disseminate the findings of the Erasmus + project ‘Education of International Newly Arrived migrant pupils’ which included two secondary school project partners from Helsinki, Finland. I will discuss the Erasmus + project outputs which included the production of the Finland country report on migrant education. The second part of the session will focus on workshop activities for teachers and researchers. The session will explore practical tools and strategies for teachers and researchers to reflect on their own experiences and practices relating to migrant education. The workshop session will explore the ‘Helsinki reflexive tool’ which is a tool developed for teachers of newly arrived migrant pupils by the University of Helsinki.
