MISSION STATEMENT


The Refugee Concerns Interest Section (RCIS) is an international association of educators working to promote high-quality teaching of English as an Additional Language to people with experiences of displacement or forced migration. It defines “refugee” broadly to include refugees, asylum seekers, displaced people, and others who have been forced from their homes and communities. While each individual’s situation is unique, the RCIS engages with the commonalities in how these experiences tend to affect learners in order to advance knowledge, policy, and practice.

The RCIS works with its worldwide partners in schools, community-based programs, resettlement agencies, refugee camps, and governing bodies to address the linguistic, social, political, and cultural needs of people who have experienced displacement or forced migration. These partners include teachers, teacher educators, language program administrators, refugee service providers, and policy-makers.
