The volume concludes with a perceptive Afterword by Colin H. Williams which reviews the aims and achievements of the Revitalise project as a whole and the principal themes and arguments advanced in this book. He situates this research within the context of other contemporary academic initiatives and the fundamental shift, which he deems ‘the metropolitan multilingual turn’, that requires us to reorient our analysis to ask how minority language speakers may benefit from co-occupying increasingly multilingual spaces. He concludes by laying down a serious challenge:that the project needs to be purposeful in arming policy makers and social activists with arguments, proven best practice principles and procedures, and a sense of the moral and empirical worth of the continued effort to nurture, protect and reimagine the conditions of possibility which sustain minority languages.
