Swedish, Finnish, English? Finland's Swedes in a Changing World
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v36 n6 p637-644 Nov-Dec 2004
This paper explores the changing conditions of the Swedish minority in bilingual Finland. It describes the framework for Finland's bilingualism and the present situation of the Swedish minority in Finland. It concludes with a discussion of the recent debate in Finland about whether the increased use of languages other than L1 is to be seen as a factor "adding value" to or devaluing national identity.
