Project CHIP - Child Immigration Project
Overview "The Child Immigration Project examined the condition of children of immigrant origin. The objectives were to understand their needs and the way that policies of social inclusion could be modified to better address those needs.

...CHIP faced a large quantity of existing research, but the absence of a shared definition of the group of "children of immigrant origin" and of a useful European set of indicators.

... The interdisciplinary and international nature of CHIP made a shared terminology essential.

...[The project included] case studies, in which the single immigrant groups become the subjects of analysis in order to capture the diversity of needs of children of immigrant origin, and of the strategies implemented to meet those needs.

... The final results of the project ... include the identification of an essential set of indicators for monitoring and supporting the well-being of children of immigrant origin." (FONDAZIONE CENSIS, 2000, pp. 1, 11)

Insight The project report (FONDAZIONE CENSIS, 2000) traces the methodological process of establishing a shared a terminology and of developing indicators.
