Abstract:

The contributions in this volume stem from different lines of research and
represent both a continuation and an advancement of the European DYLAN
project. The book addresses the meanings and implications of multilingualism
and plurilingual repertoires as well as the ways in which cultural diversity
is managed in companies and institutions in Switzerland. Characterised by
official quadrilingualism, but also by new dimensions of multilingualism
resulting from massive immigration, important workforce mobility and
increasing globalisation, Switzerland offers an ideal laboratory for studying
phenomena linked to multilingualism and cultural diversity. 

On the one hand, a special focus is put on the best practices of diversity
management and language regimes with particular attention paid to the
interplay between official languages and English, and to ways of leveraging
diversity awareness, fostering cultural inclusiveness and enhancing
intercultural learning in vocational education and training.

On the other hand, the chapters examine at close range the way actors'
plurilingual repertoires are developed and how their use is adapted to
particular objectives and specific conditions. Being observed in several types
of multilingual professional settings, the plurilingual strategies, including
English as lingua franca, are particularly examined in terms of power
relations and processes of inclusion or exclusion.
