Event description

The Department of Applied Linguistics and Communication, Birkbeck,
University of London and the Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities

Whilst there is still comparatively limited research on LPP in
organisations, studies on supranational organisations (e.g. the EU and UN)
and public administration of multilingual states (e.g. Canada, Switzerland,
Belgium) have shown that they experience great difficulties in implementing
and sustaining multilingual provision. This can lead to marked
inefficiencies and inequities for those functioning within
organisations/administrations and/or those affected externally by their
work. Current language regimes in some multilingual organisations no longer
necessarily reflect the practices or needs of individuals who work within
them. Moreover, there is demand for scientific data on ‘optimal’ language
regimes for established and newly emerging multilingual organisations. For
further developments in the field of LPP and for academics to be able to
inform policy makers, concerted interdisciplinary collaboration is needed –
not least the combined efforts of linguists, economists and political

This symposium will bring together some of the leading scholars in the
field of LPP who work across a range of disciplines (education; economics;
linguistics; politics) in order to discuss:

   - the unique challenges faced by multilingual organisations working
   within different sectors (e.g. business; diplomacy; economics) and the
   challenges faced by researchers who work in these sites
   - methods to investigate and model language regimes
   - the identification and the evaluation of the socio-economic and
   political effects of alternative ways of managing multilingual
   communication adopted by public administrations and organisations (e.g.
   political representativeness, democratic participation, social exclusion)
   - the current priorities for LPP research and its impact on policy
   makers working in multilingual organisations.
