The Language for Resilience report examines the impact of language on refugees and host communities affected by the Syrian crisis, identifying the different ways that language skills enhance resilience and providing suggestions for programme responses that address key needs.

The report identifies five interconnected ways in which language is an essential component in enhancing the resilience of individuals, communities and institutions. It identifies the protective factors in each strand and the vulnerability factors.
