Managing Policies in EMEMUS
With the use of the ROAD-MAPPING framework, this chapter examines managerial and policy concerns in English-medium Education in Multilingual University Settings (EMEMUS). In order to do this, three cases are examined in detail focusing on three different hierarchical levels—namely institutional (at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid), national (in the case of Japan, Bradford & Brown, 2018a) and continental (the Erasmus+ project titled EQUiiP). While clearly different in their approach of managerial issues, all three examples show how our framework can be used to inform higher education policy and practice, as well as teacher professional development without losing sight of language issues.
