Educational practices of Russian and Russian-mixed families in Spain: The role of parents’ values and beliefs and/or structural constraints

The project "Educational practices of Russian and Russian-mixed families in Spain: The role of parents" values and beliefs and/or structural constraints conducted by Raisa Akifyeva (National Research University `Higher School of Economics`) studies the child-rearing strategies of Russian-speaking women who live in Madrid, Spain, by focusing on their children`s participation in structured activities. Analysis focused on class distinctions of the child-rearing strategies of migrant women and resulted in the conclusion that class differences in the structured activities of children are largely determined by structural factors rather than the cultural logic of parents. The findings were published as a CGES working paper.
