Jan Christian C GUBE (Editor), Fang GAO (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBooks


The book addresses issues related to the education of ethnic minority individuals in the multilingual Asian region. It features recent research and practices of scholars aiming to rethink educational policy and practice surrounding the education of ethnicity minority students with a variety of language scenarios in Hong Kong and other Asian contexts. It documents how ethnicities and inequality are played out at policy, school, and individual levels, and how these affect the education of ethnic minorities in their host societies. Using a range of methods, from surveys to interviews and document analysis, this book describes the links between language, identity and educational inequality related to ethnic minorities in Asian contexts.
