Language-in-education Policy on the Go: How Policy is "Written" in Universities in Cambodia

This study aims to identify the diverse actors and contextual features which have shaped the language-in-education policy in Cambodian universities, and the issues that have risen thereof. Drawing on a qualitative case study using in-depth interviews with decision makers at multi-levels including vice rectors, directors and deputy directors, heads of the department, coordinators and lecturers, the paper highlights the tensions created at multi-levels of individuals (e.g., diverging motivations and priorities), universities (competition in the job market) and overarching social changes (e.g., continuously changing status and values of languages in contend, international donors), and their implications for teaching and learning. It contributes to debates on language policy and planning at the grassroots level, which is recently gaining attention.
