Current Developments in English for Academic and Specific Purposes in Developing, Emerging and Least-Developed Countries is a collection of papers which reflect the unique diversity of ESP and EAP in the developing world. While some of the papers present a historical overview of ESP and EAP in particular countries, the other papers are a representative sample of ongoing good practice in a specific context. The papers in the book are contributions of the members of the ESP SIG at IATEFL, and most of them were presented at the Pre-Conference Event in Harrogate (2006).

The IATEFL ESP SIG hopes that this book proves a unique and timely publication for ELT and Applied Linguistics practitioners who wish to gain a better understanding of the specifics of EAP and ESP in developing, emerging and least-developed countries. The ESP Special Interest Group (SIG) is one of the fourteen SIGs at IATEFL, and its main focus is English for Specific Purposes, English for Academic Purposes and English for Occupational/Professional Purposes. The main objective of the SIG is to disseminate good practice in ESP (as well as in EAP and EO/PP) through its membership and to promote models of excellence in ESP to ELT professionals internationally through workshops, seminars and conferences and through publishing the output in our Journal and in leading international ELT journals and periodicals.
