Volume 21 brings together empirical research from across the globe, and from various methodological orientations to investigate children’s relationships within multilingual settings such as preschool, school, home, and community. Diverse views of children and young people on cross-cultural relationships offer rich and valuable findings and contribute new knowledge for policy makers, social workers, educators and parents about strategies and object that help children and young people to make friends .

Internationally, the linguistic diversity of communities is at its highest to date. With increasing numbers of children and youth learning a language other than their home language at school or other places, it is important to understand the nature of the social experiences in which children and young people are involved, and the value of language policy implementations, in order to improve their future relationships. The papers in this volume are underpinned by a sociological perspective to understand children and young people’s views and experiences of friendship and peer culture in multilingual settings.
