Language Assessment for Migration and Integration (LAMI) SIG
Lorenzo Rocca (Chair) and Jane Lloyd (Co-Chair).
Anyone with an interest in migration or language policy.
LAMI Members are currently working on:
Assessment of migrants with low levels of literacy or no literacy in the target language.
Our 'LAMI Booklet' (Language Tests for access, integration and citizenship: An outline for policy makers) was produced on behalf of the Council of Europe and presented at a Symposium hosted by the Council of Europe in 2016.
It is available in full in English, Finnish and Italian. Other language editions are underway.
The LAMI Forum Language and Assessment: Making the Connections in the Migration Context took place on May 5th in Bologna. Presenters included David Little (Trinity College Dublin), Piet van Avermaet (Ghent University), Philia Thalgott (Council of Europe), and representatives from the Italian Ministry of Education and Ministry of Interior, among others. Check the programme in English or in Italian for details of the day. The event was attended by over 170 delegates.
