The CURUM Constituent

The ECSPM honours the interrelationship between civil society, academia and social action, by generating the Cluster of University Research Units focusing on Multilingualism (CURUM) and related issues such as language learning, teaching and assessment, as well as language in society/the public space.  The university units that are members/partners of the ECSPM so far are:

Pending members:

CESSMIR (Centre for the Social Study of Migration and Refugees), Ghent University, BE.
MIRCo (Multilingualism, Social Identities, Intercultural Relations and Communication), the Autonomous University of Madrid, ES.

With other such units soon to join our CURUM constituent, the overriding goal is to attempt to bring together European and international research into multilingualism from different disciplines.
