This book series collects a wide range of scholarship on different, yet mutually
complementary dimensions of multilingualism. It contains the main findings of a
five-year integrated research project supported by the European Commission and
brings together researchers from eighteen universities across the continent.

The project, known under its acronym of DYLAN (Language Dynamics and Management
of Diversity), examines the interconnections between social actors'
representations of language and multilingualism, policies adopted by various
organizations to deal with multilingualism, the role of context which shapes,
but is also shaped by representations and policies regarding multilingualism,
and actual language practices. These interconnections are explored on three
types of terrain: private-sector companies, the political institutions of the
European Union, and the sphere of education (with an emphasis on universities in
bi- or trilingual settings). In addition, three major themes cutting across
these different terrains are analysed, namely, efficiency and fairness in
language choices, emerging language varieties, and the historical dimensions of
multilingualism.
