CARDET in cooperation with the consultancy firm INNOVADE LI LTD have been granted the project “Research on Cypriot Students’ Perceptions with Regards to Immigrants”. The project was awarded to the consortium following an open call for proposals from the Civil Registry and Migration Department of the Ministry of Interior, under the European Integration Fund, as part of the Solidarity Funds. The project is co-funded by the EU Solidarity Funds (75%) and the Republic of Cyprus (25%). The objective of this research project is to investigate and explore the perceptions and attitudes of Cypriot students in primary and secondary schools with respect to immigrants (Third Country Nationals). The results of the project will be of value to the Civil Registry and Migration Department, as well as other organizations involved in migration issues.
