Salomone Posts Commentary in University World News

Professor Rosemary Salomone’s Commentary, “Italian Court Pushes Back on the Race Towards English,” appeared in the February 3rd issue of University World News.

Professor Salomone examines the decision of Italy’s Consiglio di Stato (high administrative court) striking down the decision of Milan’s prestigious Polytechnic Institute in 2012 to offer all graduate programs in English beginning in 2014. Professor Salomone has been commenting on the case as it has worked its way through the Italian courts over the past five years. She now maintains that the several opinions that have emerged from the Italian administrative courts and the Constitutional Court together provide a well-developed framework for other European countries to consider as they weigh what is gained and what is lost and how to mitigate the harms as universities use English as a vehicle for internationalization to remain competitive in the global economy.
