La maîtrise de la langue et de la communication constitue un enjeu
important des politiques actuelles en faveur de l'intégration des
populations étrangères. Cet ouvrage brosse un vaste panorama des
problématiques que pose la prise en compte de la langue dans le processus
d'intégration, que ce soit en milieu professionnel pour les migrants ou en
milieu universitaire pour les étudiants allophones, en termes de formation,
d'accompagnement linguistique, d'évaluation et de certification, de
relations interculturelles, d'outils et de dispositifs, de contraintes
institutionnelles, etc. Il se fixe pour objectif de présenter l'état de la
question relative à l'intégration linguistique et de dégager les objectifs
prioritaires d'une politique linguistique, culturelle et sociale d'accueil
et d'intégration des populations migrantes.
