INTERNATIONALIZATION AND LANGUAGE POLICIES IN BRAZIL: EVIDENCE OF THE INTERFACE AT UFES
This paper discusses the interface between internationalization and language policies in general in Brazil by looking for evidence and traces of evidence in a local context. More specifically, Brazilian national programs such as the Science without Borders (SwB), the Languages without Borders (LwB) and the Capes PrInt call are analysed in the national context, as evidence of national policies. Then, the analysis and discussion zooms in a local context to find evidence of these policies in the recently approved internationalization and language policies of the Federal University of Espirito Santo (UFES) located in the Southeast of Brazil. Overall the analysis concludes that UFES internationalization and language policies are related and aligned with national policies having been induced by them in a reactive way.
