This paper reviews strategies for addressing the needs of refugee, migrant and internally displaced children in the Asia-Pacific region. It aims to examine how linguistic diversity and human mobility intersect and impact minority, migrant and refugee children’s access to quality, inclusive education. In addition, it aims to link policy priorities to promising practices, based on international frameworks and lessons learned from successful programmes. It also provides recommendations for improving language-in-education policies and their implementation.
