Abstract

The concluding chapter picks up on the overarching purpose of the book, namely to offer an understanding of the intricacies, limitations and opportunities of English-Medium Education in Multilingual University Settings (EMEMUS). It emphasises the need for ROAD-MAPPING, a theoretically grounded conceptual framework that allows for in-depth comprehensive analyses of EMEMUS. Additionally, the chapter provides a summary of the strengths and limitations of the framework and concludes with the suggestions for further avenues of research.
