The Council of Europe has been a pioneer in addressing migration-related issues since 1968. Political contexts and globalisation have had a great influence on the way approaches have developed since then.

Language is a central aspect of the many issues raised by migration, and access to education for migrants is particularly important indeed.

This section contains a compilation of Council of Europe official texts relating to migrants’ education, as well as a recommendation of the Parliamentary Assembly on the impact of language tests. It also provides a number of policy guidelines and publications.
