Presentation

My books on language policy, language rights, and language in education have been published in a dozen countries. I have strong links to colleagues worldwide, many of whom are critical scholars working for greater social justice in education and the wider international society. In recent years I have been invited to lecture in Australia, China, Indonesia, Korea, Mauritius, South Africa, Turkey, the UK, and several eastern and southern European countries. I act as an expert assessing EU funding applications in the area of language and culture and European identity. Influencing the Danish government to take language policy seriously has always been uphill and is a continuing challenge. In 2010 I was awarded the UNESCO Linguapax prize.
