Securitizing Language Borders: Between Monoglossic Ideologies and Hybrid Language Practices

A new policy paper in the SECUREU Policy Paper Series is now online.

  • English

This policy paper critically examines the securitization of language borders, focusing on the divide between institutional monoglossic perspectives and real-world hybrid plurilingual practices. It explores how such securitization, particularly in the context of language assessments, can contribute to exclusionary practices and reinforce societal inequalities. Specifically, language borders often neglect important socio-linguistic features such as language variation, change, and the dynamic nature of linguistic belonging.
