Five papers address issues in language learning and teaching in multicultural environments. "Namibian Educational Language Planning: English for Liberation or Neo-Colonialism?" (Robert Phillipson, Tove Skutnabb-Kangas, Hugh Africa) examines decisive factors in choice of language for instruction, focusing on the choice of English and the role of native languages. In "Cultilinguistic Imperialism -- What Can Scandinavia Learn from the Second and Third Worlds?" (Skutnabb-Kangas and Phillipson), it is proposed that Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden should draw more on the multilingual experience in less developed countries to clarify the different purposes served by each language in a multilingual community and identify which languages need support. "Can Increased Metacommunicative Awareness Solve Intercultural Communication Difficulties?" (Phillipson and Skutnabb-Kangas) invites scholars with experience in working with metacommunicative awareness to participate in a project begun in 1985. "How to Analyse Communicative Competence in the Integration Process" (Skutnabb-Kangas and Phillipson) proposes that for acculturation and social integration to occur for immigrants, the power relationship among groups must be changed, intercultural gaps narrowed, and solidarity established between minority and dominant majority. "Who Wants To Change What and Why?--Conflicting Paradigms in Minority Education Research" (Skutnabb-Kangas) attempts to clarify reasons for conflicting recommendations for education of minority children.
