Trilingualism and Trilingual Education in Minority Region in China: Comparative Multiple-case Studies in Minority Autonomous Regions

In recent decades, the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has instigated language policies in education ostensibly designed to foster trilingualism in ethnic minority groups. The policies, which vary from region to region, encompass the local ethnic language, Chinese and English, and present a range of challenges to communities in general and primary schools in particular. How these challenges are addressed is the subject of a research project that we are currently undertaking in collaboration with nine teams of researchers in different parts of China: Yunnan, Sichuan, Guangxi, Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, Jilin, Gansu, Qinghai and Guangdong.
