Language programming and tools, when strategically implemented as part of wider humanitarian and development efforts, can enhance resilience at all levels in a community. The Language for Resilience conference in Buenos Aires brought together practitioners, civil society leaders, government officials, refugees, academics and others to share best practice, discuss approaches and principles to language work in the context of refugees and migrants, assess the importance of cultural relations as a response to refugee situations, and network with a view to generating alliances and joined-up responses at the national and regional level. The event was organised with the support of UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) and IOM (International Organization for Migration).
