Meeting Description:

The conference encourages the participants to submit innovative panels, workshops and other presentations that aim at promoting empowering designs and approaches to language education policy. Hence the theme of co-designs: rather than focus on "producers" and "users" of language education policy, we would like to turn our attention towards policy formation as a two-way co-operative process. The conference will among other things focus on:

- Bi-/multilingual education
- Classroom contexts
- Migrants and language education
- Language education and the working life
- Second/foreign languages
- Policy approaches

In addition to the talks delivered by plenary speakers, the programme will consist of panel discussions, paper and poster sessions, colloquia and workshops.

Talks by plenary speakers:

- Professor (emerita) Marilyn Martin-Jones, University of Birmingham, UK
- Associate Professor Feliciano Chimbutane, Universidade Eduardo Mondlane, Mozambique
- T.B.A
