Kutlay Yagmur, associate professor at Tilburg University and one of our Language Rich Europe data analysis experts, is featured by the Mercator Research Centre as their “Expert in the Spotlight” for September. In the article Kutlay discusses his background, the challenges he faces at work and his latest project… Language Rich Europe!
Together with British Council and 20 European institutions, including Mercator Research Centre (Fryske Akademy), we have been developing a multilingualism index to illustrate the current situation in Europe…. We will basically compare policies and practices against European Commission and Council of Europe standards in education, public services and spaces, business, media, and national language diversity documents and databases. We hope to raise awareness by presenting hard core evidence from 20 countries.
