Jovanovic, Srdan Mladenov – Language Policy, 2018
Ever since the wars of the Yugoslav secession in the nineties, linguistic nationalism has proven to have been among the more relevant instances in the discursive construction of national identity and new languages, dubbed by Ranko Bugarski as 'administrative successors' of Serbo-Croatian.

Alexander, Mariko Mizuno – Language Policy, 2017
Though previous research addresses the negative impact of state-mandated high school exit exams on English language learners' (ELLs) educational experiences, less attention has been given to how college-oriented ELLs, especially those who attended school in their home countries before coming to the US, handle rigorous exams or gain access to…

Albury, Nathan John – Language Policy, 2017
Just as an expanded view of language policy now affords agency to many more actors across society than authorities and linguists alone, it also accepts that the dispositions these agents bring to language affairs influence language policy processes and outcomes.

McPake, Joanna; McLeod, Wilson; O'Hanlon, Fiona; Fassetta, Giovanna; Wilson, Mona – Language Policy, 2017
Education through the medium of a minoritised language is widely regarded as a critical component of language revitalisation initiatives.
