This book proposes an innovative treatment of minority language policies, by looking at them as policy options that can be methodically evaluated. The author applies the analytical concepts and technical tools of policy analysis to guide the reader through a step-by-step application of notions such as effectiveness and cost-effectiveness, with particular reference to the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages. The thrust of this book is deeply interdisciplinary, and links the evaluation exercise to sociolinguistic, political and legal considerations.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Overall, this is a groundbreaking book, scholarly and well researched. It is relevant beyond the European Charter for Regional and Minority Languages as it encompasses universal themes in language policy. Strong and expert on the more quantitative approach to the evaluation of policy implementation, there is a consideration of major concepts that is engaged critically and constructively.' - Colin Baker, University of Wales for The Journal of Sociolinguistics.

'Francois Grin is a well established and informed commentator on European linguistic issues. This volume reflects both his wide knowledge of language policy-related affairs and his incisive interpretation of key trends which are likely to structure the contours of the minority language landscape...Both the authors and the publishers are to be congratulated for producing this volume.' - Colin H Williams, Current Issues in Language Planning
