Social capital and modern language initiatives in times of policy uncertainty

Social capital and modern language initiatives in times of policy uncertainty is an article that I wrote with Hannah Doughty and Heather McGuinness and which has just been published in the Scottish Languages Review. We examined examples of bonding, bridging and linking social capital with references to policy initiatives in England and Scotland (it’s a comparative piece). This is an open access article.

I also wrote a piece for The Tablet Let Nation speak unto NationĀ about the decline in language learning in the UK and about the steps being taken by the Routes into Languages programme to address the decline.
