Language Policy Index for Migrants (LAPIM)

  • 18 Oct 2023
  • 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM (CEST)
  • Microsoft Teams

EALTA and ALTE Special Interest Groups in Migration and Integration are co-organising an online event taking place on 18th October, on the Language Policy Index for Migrants (LAPIM). 

The Language Policy Index for Migrants (LAPIM) measures the linguistic requirements in integration and citizenship policy as well as learning opportunities for migrants across Europe. It is the first index of its kind to be designed specifically for this purpose. It was designed within the IMPECT Research Project at the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences with the purpose of ranking countries according to their relative strictness in language policy. LAPIM has been piloted in 6 European countries and data have been collected from 20 countries to date. The index describes both explicit language requirements for migrants (such as language tests) as well as implicit language requirements (e.g., knowledge of society tests) and existing language learning opportunities in each country.

Cecilie Hamnes Carlsen and Lorenzo Rocca (Chairs of the ALTE LAMI SIG) will share the development of this index and discuss current and future use. The event will be offered online on Microsoft Teams from 15:30-17:00 (CEST).
