Language and Education Orientations in Lithuania: A Cross-Baltic Perspective Post-EU Accession
Bulajeva, Tatjana; Hogan-Brun, Gabrielle
International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, v11 n3-4 p396-422 2008
This paper presents an up-to-date overview of language policies and practices in Lithuania, paying particular attention to the latest developments that have taken place in national educational contexts. Against the background of recent sociodemographic changes in the three Baltic republics, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, it analyzes issues pertaining to educational measures chosen in support of both Lithuanian and other locally used languages. In tracing re-evolving individual multilingualisms amongst majority and minority populations around EU accession, it will be shown that these are symbolic of changing orientations, which are socially, politically and economically motivated.
