Policy Recommendations

The recommendations of this report  by the EC Civil Society Platform on Multilingualism are directed principally at the European Commission, Member States and Regional Administrations. However, there are also a number of recommendations for action that can be taken forward by the Platform itself.

In spite of the potential of linguistic abilities for economic growth and a broad EU recognition of language diversity, there are still gaps in EU language policy. Where policy exists, there is often a divide between policy and practice, with some countries and regions demonstrating a stronger commitment to multilingualism than others. Europe needs to develop a language policy that monitors language use and ensures that languages are treated equally. Structurally, it needs a permanent Civil Society Platform on Multilingualism to act as an instrument of dialogue between the EU policy level on the one side and the national, regional and local language policy levels and social reality on the other side.

The policy recommendations of the EC Civil Society Platform on Multilingualism can be found below.
