Language Rights in the United Kingdom post-Brexit

Language Rights in the United Kingdom post-Brexit

Alongside colleagues at Queen’s University, I was delighted to host the 2019 UK Language Policy after Brexit conference on ‘Language Rights in the UK post-Brexit’. Thanks to all the speakers and attendees.    We managed to catch up with some of the contributors for some short interviews, I would encourage you to view.

Fiona MacKay, Director of Scotland’s National Centre for Languages talks about the importance of appreciating languages.

We also heard from Timothy Jacob-Owens of the European University Institute, and his views on the European Councils role in supporting language rights and the impact from Brexit.

Another contributor was Claire Allision from King Edward VII School in Sheffield, a co-leader on the Home Language Accreditation Project.
