Approaches to Language in Education for Migrants and Refugees in the Asia-Pacific Region

The Asia-Pacific region hosts the largest number of refugees and displaced people in the world, and is the place of origin for nearly half of all international migrants. However, data related to the unique language-in-education needs of refugee and migrant children in and from this area is sparse. The report aims to create a stronger knowledge base to support Member States as they formulate education policies that are responsive to the needs of such children.

It aims to:
•  Examine how linguistic diversity and human mobility intersect and impact minority, migrant and refugee children’s access to quality, inclusive education;
•  Link policy priorities to promising practices, based on international frameworks and lessons learned from successful programmes; and
• Recommend steps for improving language-in-education policies and their implementation.
