Governance, Policy-Making and Language Revitalisation

Huw Lewis, Wilson McLeod

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This essay reflects on the significance for contemporary language revitalisation programmes of regionalisation, internationalisation, the continued advance of the market and the emergence of post-welfare models of governance, drawing on evidence from Wales, Scotland, Catalonia, the Basque Autonomous Community and Ireland. These trends clearly have important implications for the context in which language revitalisation takes place and thus for which types of actors are involved and how relevant initiatives are formulated, funded and implemented.
