Abstract

Linguistic circumstances influence people’s employment prospects, their opportunities to form relationships, and their abilities to exercise social and political rights. Indeed, in a variety of different settings people are both advantaged and disadvantaged as a result of the fact that linguistic environments inevitably reward different language repertoires unequally. This panel explores some of the different ways in which these inequalities might be addressed from the perspective of social justice, focusing especially on the question of how a concern with justice ought to be balanced against legitimate public policy goals, such as mobility and inclusion, in the domain of language policy.
