The Relevance of Foreign Experience to Ukrainian Language Policy

The project examines language policies in different multilingual countries – both those with official bi- or multilingualism and those promoting one dominant language – aiming to identify arrangements that could be adopted in today’s Ukraine. Many Ukrainians desire language policies adopted from Western countries, but the experiences of post-colonial countries are also relevant to post-imperial Ukraine. In each examined country the project explores sociolinguistic, historical and political factors determining the language policy, and its degree of success.
