Abstract:

Politics can be a very important influence on educational developments and
their deployment. However, this volume is different from other volumes
since it looks, not at the macropolitics and the ideological agendas of
nations and multinational or global organisations, but rather focuses on
micropolitics, the agendas and motivations of individuals within
organisations, and on their actions. Micropolitics can be seen as ways of
manoeuvring within institutions which are themselves not political, but
commercial, financial and educational. Indeed, politics with a small 'p'
includes not only institutional politics, but also personal politics, which
can influence language education both in daily matters, and in projects for
innovation and change. The aim of this edited book is to begin a debate
about the nature and role of micropolitics, to contribute to a better
understanding of language education, change and resistance to change, and
the processes of language education.
