Under Professor Linda Cardinal's direction, the Chaire de recherche sur la francophonie et les politiques publiques will advance theoretical ideas on the creation of public policies and the empowerment of linguistic minorities. This research in comparative policy is set in the context of the integration of the Americas and the wider European community. It joins the debate on post-nationalist approaches to linguistic diversity and citizenship. More precisely, it will rely on empirical research on Canada. It will evaluate the various models of governance and linguistic development in light of their capacity to foster the empowerment of official language minorities. It will contribute to the development of public policy by defining the most suitable models for the preservation and growth of linguistic diversity.
