This event is part of Analysis in Government Month 2024.

Languages-related research intersects with numerous fields of direct application to government policy in a multilingual UK with global aspirations. But it is under-used and often misunderstood.

Join the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) to find out more about the cross-government Languages Group and their aims to promote the development of intelligent relationships between departments and the academic languages research community. Their work aims to support effective decision-making that affects areas such as:

  • culture, linguistics, and communication
  • technology
  • behavioural and social sciences
  • health and wellbeing
  • social cohesion
  • education

By the end of this session you will have:

  • learned more about the importance of languages expertise to support government policy making

  • discovered new ways of working and engaging people in your work
