This interdisciplinary book details the status of migrant languages in a
particular European region. The author draws on fieldwork conducted in
Northern Ireland to contextualise the challenges faced at both state and
community level in a linguistically diverse public space. Such debates on
multiculturalism are particularly relevant in a region which has witnessed
increased levels of immigration in the period of „normalisation“ that has
followed the end of the Northern Ireland conflict.

Philip McDermott lectures in Sociology, Politics and European Studies at
the University of Ulster, Northern Ireland.
