Language policies and migration in Europe: a comparative approach

Department of Literature and Languages

Applications accepted all year round Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

The project provides a new comparative analysis of language policies as a key factor in integrating asylum
seekers and refugees in European countries. It will evaluate existing language policies in the light of data
emerging from NGOs working in the sector, and address how language policies can facilitate asylum seekers’ and refugees’ social integration. It will also elucidate the existing gaps in language policies at local, national and international level, and will answer some key questions, such as:
1) To what extent should national language policies include refugees’ needs?
2) To what extent have national policies been implemented to take into account the new waves of refugees since 2015?
3) What do refugees need in terms of language teaching in the country of arrival?
4) What are the possibilities provided by formal education (centrally or locally organised under the umbrella of the national ministry of Education) and informal education (i.e. NGOs, charities, confessionalorganisations)?
5) What linguistic competence are refugees required to achieve to start a formal process of inclusiveness in their new national communities?
