In many parts of the world the language education scenario is increasinglydynamic, as demographic, economic and social changes powerfully influencesocio-political agendas in the sphere of language education. These in turnimpact on complex issues such as linguistic pluralism, multiculturalism, andmarginalization. This is especially so in the sphere of second languageeducation where local, national and regional concerns often dominate theobjectives underpinning policy choice and prioritisation.

This volume brings together scholars and researchers from a wide range ofdifferent educational contexts and turns a sociolinguistic lens on some of thekey areas of concern for researchers in language education: criticalawareness of power and identity issues; competence in dealing with newsociolinguistic repertoires, modalities and literacies; ethical concerns for allwho are involved. The 'case study' approach enables the reader to reflect onand critically engage with these issues in a rich variety of contextualsituations, and the volume as a whole provides a useful overview of (second)language education in the world today.
