Title: Europe and the Politics of Language
Subtitle: Citizens, Migrants and Outsiders
Written By: MáiréadNicCraith
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403918333
Description:

Do political boundaries impact on concepts of language? How significant is
language for citizenship in contemporary Europe? Can disputed languages
acquire full status? Should non-European languages receive recognition from
the EU? These are among the many questions explored in this new study of
official, regional and disputed languages in an ever-changing European
context. Broad policy issues and the performance of the range of
instruments of policy at local, national and European levels are
illustrated with reference to case studies across Europe.
