Democratising policy theories: enhancing prospects for language justice for Sign Language Peoples

The paper argues that policies relating to Sign Language Peoples (SLPs) in the UK are based on an assumption that they are a disability rather than a minority language formation. Consequently, they deliver unsatisfactory outcomes which struggle to reduce linguistic exclusion. Multicultural policies incorporating SLPs' perspectives would offer greater synergy between policy theories and SLPs' lived experience. More specifically, democratisation of the policy formulation process could deliver greater social justice for SLPs. Looking forward, the power of transnational networks to provoke national policy change offers a possible way of breaking through existing UK discourse barriers to more democratic SLP-led policy formulation.
