The West and linguistic diversity - analysis of and perspectives on a problematic relationship - While speaking a shared language certainly stands as a powerful factor for aggregation in a community, the use of other languages in the community life does not necessarily constitute a threat to its cohesion and civil identity. On the contrary, often it is precisely the insistence on pursuing repressive monolingual policies which systematically prevents cohesion within (ethno-) linguistically heterogeneous communities. It is now incumbent upon the West to design new language policies which are able to enhance the value of multi-lingualism as an important resource.
