Milestones in Language Planning and Development Aid
Coleman, Hywel
Current Issues in Language Planning, v18 n4 p442-468 2017
This paper tracks the changing relationships between language planning and development aid over a period of 70 years from the end of the Second World War to the present day. Drawing on documentary resources--in particular, the published proceedings of the Language and Development Conferences (LDCs)--the paper identifies a number of significant milestones. It is argued that the period under review can usefully be analysed in terms of three "development phases". The paper pays particular attention to English and it demonstrates that contributors to the LDCs have become more questioning about the role of English in development as awareness of multilingualism has grown.
