ContentThe languages of the world are organized hierarchically according to geopolitical criteria and bring different types of benefits to their linguistic community: they allow (or not) the individuals to have certain linguistic services and they allow different degrees of visibility for the production of the communities that speak them. In this lecture we will analyze the place occupied by the Portuguese in this global geopolitical hierarchy, the plans and difficulties for the management and promotion of the language, as well as the main projections made by specialized think tanks on the future of the language.
