Parallel Language Use - a proposition for debate (2009)
A taskforce at CIP has formulated a description of the principles for the CIP staff's use of different languages. The description refers to the four points outlined in the Foundation Document on what a language policy at an institution of higher education should cover, namely: teaching, research, dissemination and internal communication.
