University of Macau

I-INTRODUCTION

The University of Macau is located in the Macao Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, a multilingual, multicultural environment where we can find individuals and communities from over Asia and over the world. In this sense, it has a privileged position to develop and lead projects related to multilingualism. The Axels of the world are changing, and Asia, especially China (including Macau), is assuming a very important role under the perspective of globalization. Therefore, languages and cultures from everywhere are interacting in a deep and intense way. In this sense, our International Conference is an effort to qualify internationally a line of research connected with UNESCO’s goals, creating, among other things, a network of partner universities in different countries and establishing common research objectives and methodologies.
