INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON EDUCATIONAL POLICIES AND FUTURE PERSPECTIVES

Monday 16th April 2018 (Sala Villani) Tuesday 17th April 2018 (Sala degli Angeli) Università degli studi Suor Orsola Benincasa, Via Suor Orsola 10 | Corso Vittorio Emanuele 292 - Napoli

Languages have always been a pivotal element upon which the European Union has invested over the years with new projects, policies and initiatives in the field of language education. The promotion of plurilingualism across Europe is one of the recurrent objectives pursued by the European Commission. The advent of Brexit, the rise of break-away independence movements and the often precarious balance generated by recent migra- tory flows all call for a need to continually re-evaluate language policies and practices in order to best foster in- tegration and inclusion through forward-looking social and academic programmes.

This two-day symposium aims to offer an overarching yet detailed view of the ever-changing European lingua- cultural scenario and the consequent European language policies with their repercussions upon research and experimental initiatives in the field of language education. It is only through an in-depth investigation of such to- pical issues that we can LET languages shape our European identities.
