Meeting Description: Building upon various approaches in Language Policy and Planning (LPP), particularly on Language Management Theory (LMT), the Fifth International Language Management Symposium welcomes papers highlighting interests and power in language management. Interests and power have been long acknowledged as important factors in various approaches in LPP. Despite this fact, it is not an exaggeration to claim that they have been devoted little focused attention compared to other factors such as motivation in or goals of LPP. Though the foundational paper of LMT published by B. H. Jernudd and J. V. Neustupný in 1987, entitled ''Language planning: for whom?,'' was devoted to the issue of interests, this topic has not been taken up and elaborated upon even in this LPP research tradition. The aim of this symposium, therefore, is to focus on the themes of interests and power and discuss their role and use in language management.
