IEJEE - 2013 - special issue:
MULTILINGUALISM AND MULTILINGUAL EDUCATION IN
The population of the Nordic countries have been linguistically more diverse then ever before. Historically Finland, Norway and Sweden have had different educational policies for the indigenous people, the Sami People, within their borders. In addition, Finland has always had a bilingual policy because of Swedish speaking communities in the country. In Denmark there has been German speaking cumminity and thus some ducational provisions for them in the southern part of the country. Starting from the 1960s Sweden, Denmark and Norway and during the recent years Finnland, received an increasing number of immigrants from non-EU and EU countries. The educational policies in these countries are trying to accomodate different categories of linguistic minority students. This special issue of International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education aims to present the educational policies, principles and practices regarding multilingualism and multilingual education in Nordic countries. Contributers to this issue will be researchers of "Network for Researchers of Multilingualism and Multilingual Education (RoMME)", who received funding from NordForsk, Nordic Council of Ministers.
