Following on from the inaugural UKLPAB conference in 2016, the theme of this year’s meeting will be devolution and the extent of policy variation post-Brexit. What will be the significance of Brexit for language policies adopted by UK nations?

UKLPAB took place last year in England, and this year will take place in Wales. In addition to our call for papers, we invite applications to host next year’s UKLPAB in another of the UK nations.
