Abstract:

This volume examines the role of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) in education
in Europe. Following the implementation of the Bologna process, English has
assumed a central role in European education offering institutions the
opportunity to cater to the needs of an internationalized student body and
increase their competitiveness. On the other hand, the increased use of ELF
has become an issue of concern, often perceived as a threat to other
languages, tilting the scale towards linguistic inequality and stressing the
urgent need for the development of new language policies. Both aspects of ELF
are at the center of discussion in the proposed volume, which consists of a
variety of papers examining ELF in different parts of Europe (Eastern, Central
and Western) and different levels of education. The volume makes a substantial
contribution to the lively and controversial debate about what is recognized
as a central topical concern of language education policy in Europe and
beyond.
