Gouverner les langues : l’institutionnalisation et la transformation de la politique d’enseignement des langues étrangères en France, en Allemagne et au Luxembourg

Abstract : This thesis analyses public action in the field of the government of languages through the study of the transformation of foreign language education policies in France, Germany and Luxembourg. The analysis aims to show how language education policies that are relatively similar in terms of their goals and their means of implementation produce significantly different results in France and Germany, two cases that appear to very close. Retracing the process of institutionalization of these policies on the long term, our demonstration shows that these differences can only be partially explained by infra-sectorial dynamics. The explanation of the variation in the outputs and outcomes of foreign language education policies requires to take into account the larger political and societal configuration through a systemic perspective: it is the sectorial or intersectorial definition of the objective of multilingualism and the interaction effects between language education policies and other policy sectors that explain the variations in individuals’ perceptions of the utility of language and their motivation to invest in the study of this languages, and consequently the differences in the results of these policies. The absence of a direct link between the inputs, outputs and outcomes of foreign language education policies raises the questions of the limits of public policy in the field of governing languages. These limits are linked to the responsiveness of the state to contradictory citizens’ preferences and to the link that exists between language and citizenship in monolingual societies.
