Council of Europe Language Policy Portal
Language learners/users lie at the heart of the work of the Language Policy Programme. Whatever their status, all languages are covered: foreign languages, major languages of schooling (used for learning/teaching at school), languages spoken in the family and minority or regional languages. A specific programme focuses on the linguistic integration of migrants (adults and young people, and also refugees).
The analytical tools and working aids that have been produced, together with the studies and reference material that have been made available, are all based on respect for and acknowledgement of linguistic plurality and cultural diversity. Many of them concentrate on the development of and conditions for implementing plurilingual and intercultural education.
This work has now resulted in a multitude of resources, available on this portal and on dedicated thematic websites.
