This series is founded on the principle that research and practice in content-and-language integration must be conceived of as deeply embedded in pluriculturality and plurilingualism.

Responding to the latest development in bilingual and multilingual education around the world, this series proposes a paradigmatic shift in research and pedagogy towards plurilingual education which aims at not only fostering learners’ plurilingual competences but also creating and affirming their plurilingual/pluricultural identities and subjectivities.
