Romanian immigrants are the largest group of immigrant children in Italian public schools. This paper applied an ecosystemic framework to review existing research on Romanian migrants’ experience to understand sociopolitical/ cultural, community, family, and individual factors. The majority of research on migrants from the Romanian perspective has focused on the effects on children of an absent parent due to labor migration. Existing research finds little effect of migration on children well-being compared to the larger effect of poverty. Given the large number of Romanian immigrants who appear to have established residence abroad and enrolled their children in foreign schools, further research is needed to understand the adaptation needs of immigrants in their host country
