This book stems from the joint effort of 25 research teams across Europe, representing a dozen disciplines from the social sciences and humanities, resulting in a radically novel perspective to the challenges of multilingualism in Europe. The various concepts and tools brought to bear on multilingualism are analytically combined in an integrative framework starting from a core insight: in its approach to multilingualism, Europe is pursuing two equally worthy, but non-converging goals, namely, the mobility of citizens across national boundaries (and hence across languages and cultures) and the preservation of Europe’s diversity, which presupposes that each locale nurtures its linguistic and cultural uniqueness, and has the means to include newcomers in its specific linguistic and cultural environment. In this book, scholars from applied linguistics, economics, the education sciences, finance, geography, history, law, political science, philosophy, psychology, sociology and translation studies apply their specific approaches to this common challenge. Without compromising the state-of-the-art analysis proposed in each chapter, particular attention is devoted to ensuring the cross-disciplinary accessibility of concepts and methods, making this book the most deeply interdisciplinary volume on language policy and planning published to date.

Table of Contents
“Overall, this book showcases a diversity of perspectives from various contexts, offering critical and practical insights into current situations. It is exceptionally well-edited and makes a great contribution to the study of language policy. It excels in setting and defining the contexts in which each research study is embedded. Because the topic is rife with ideologies and political opinions, sensitivity is obviously required – and this is evident throughout the collection. [...] The stellar content here will certainly prove an inspiration for scholars, policy-makers and students.”
