The article tries to explore language issues within multifaceted phenomenon of forced migration. The study stood on qualitative research paradigm, followed the critical instance case study and inductive approach as the topic under study has no comprehensive structured knowledge. Integrated techniques (grounded theory, content analysis, thematic analysis) were applied to make sense of the random sampling data and produce qualitative interpretations. The research goal is to identify audiences and actors for whom language issues can be relevant within complex phenomenon of refugee flows and how the above audiences and actors address the language issues within their experiences and roles related to the phenomenon thereof. Research materials included empirical data from a variety of sources, experience of the actors, analysis of reports and documents, etc., that are available for the public in open access mode. The research findings led to the conclusion that the agenda on durable solutions to forced migration from South to North should consistently incorporate language issues and requires structural vision thereof. Concrete recommendations and pathways were offered to fulfil the above.
