Language Education Policy Profiles

The objective here was to offer national or regional authorities or cities the opportunity to undertake a self-evaluation of their language education policy in a spirit of dialogue with Council of Europe experts, also drawing on the resources developed in the context of the Language Policy Programme.

The 18 Profiles completed between 2002 and 2017 address a wide range of situations and challenges which may help to inform the self-reflection of other education authorities.
