Maintaining Minority Languages in Transnational Contexts offers insights

multilingualism. These approaches include dealing with indigenous and
migrant ethnolinguistic minorities, critical examination of educational policies
for the provision of community languages in mainstream schooling,
educational initiatives for the linguistic integration of minority language
speakers and community efforts to maintain and/or revitalise minority
languages. The chapters offer insights into country-specific policies in
Australia, Belgium, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Scotland,
Spain and Sweden, and engage in comparative discussions, either between
countries within Europe or between Australia and Europe.
