Provides an introduction to the six contributions contained in this special issue and discusses how they relate to the core theme.
Highlights the need for an approach which treats discourses, policies and practices as connected and mutually implicated, rather than discrete, phenomena.
Presents an approach to discourse analysis which promotes an engagement with wider aspects of social activity.
