Principi di programmazione, attuazione e valutazione di una politica linguistica

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter provides a brief introduction to some key concepts of public policy analysis and adapts them to the study of language policy and planning. The chapter presents language policy as a particular form of public policy that can be studied through the policy cycle model. It focuses on the phases of policy design, implementation and evaluation. Some central components of planning such as programme theory, language policy instruments and indicators are illustrated with examples. The chapter is aimed at both scholars in language policy and planning and decision-makers, and it aims to promote a results-oriented approach to language planning.
