    Dear colleagues,

    we would like to draw your attention to the new online and open-access   Languages, Society and Policy Journal, a journal aiming to connect research in languages and linguistics with policy through publishing the latest academic peer-reviewed research in jargon-free, short and accessible papers. The journal is part of MEITS, a flagship AHRC-funded project aiming to revitalise Modern Languages and shape UK language policy by showing how multilingualism can empower individuals and transform societies.
