Meeting Description:    The topic of the 2016 symposium is the interface
between language and migration and how the language situation, planning
and policies in various countries, Asia in particular, are managed as a
result of in-migration or out-migration. As the world refugee crisis
intensifies discussion has reopened on issues concerning the role of
language in international migration: language and new citizenship,
language proficiency policies and requirements, migration to countries
of language proximity, language change, terminologies (e.g. migrant vs
refugee), language loss and maintenance, how language shapes or
influences migration. Within this general theme, language and migration
will be explored in its pedagogical, historical, and social frameworks.

The symposium is organized by the Linguapax Asia Committee. Linguapax
Asia works in partnership with the Linguapax Institute, a non-
governmental organization affiliated with UNESCO and located in
Barcelona, Spain. The Asian associate of the Linguapax Institute,
Linguapax Asia carries out the objectives of both the Linguapax
Institute and UNESCO's Linguapax Project with a special focus on Asia
and the Pacific rim. For further information visit our site at www.
