This survey is organized by the Education Department, in the framework of the project Linguistic Integration of Adult Migrants (LIAM), in cooperation with the Association of Language Testers in Europe (ALTE).
The primary purpose of this survey, that follows up on previous Council of Europe surveys on this topic (2007, 2009, 2013) is to map the language requirements and knowledge of society (KoS) requirements for migrants in Council of Europe member states prior to entry, for residence and for citizenship with the aim of identifying trends in policies for the linguistic integration of migrants. A new feature in this survey is the particular attention dedicated to vulnerable groups, such as illiterate/low-literate migrants, women, unaccompanied minors, asylum seekers and refugees.
Following the analysis of the results, a subsequent report will be drafted; one of the aims will be to stimulate critical reflection as response to the Committee of Ministers Action Plan on Migrant and Refugee Children in Europe.
