About the session

Language for Resilience

The British Council has the pleasure of inviting you to attend the follow up to our report launch of 'Language for Resilience'. The report examines the role that language can play in enhancing the resilience of Syrian refugees and host communities. The 'Language for Resilience' report was commissioned in response to the unprecedented effects of the Syrian refugee crisis and brings together information gathered though interviews with refugees, host communities and those working to support them, with lessons learned from past and on-going British Council language programming in conflict and post-conflict areas. Key practitioners and Syrian refugee stakeholders will share their thoughts on the role of language in enhancing the resilience of individuals and communities affected by crisis.

Speakers: Catherine Walter (moderator), Syrian refugee stakeholders
