Under his regime, the decreased emphasis on the teaching of Russian contrasted with the promotion of Romanian identity. Undoubtedly the leading proponent of the efforts to give socialism a national, rather than international form was Tito’s Yugoslavia.

In Hungary a language law was introduced in 1907 which announced that teachers would be sacked if they or their students failed to learn Magyar, the official language. Thus language laws, or provisions concerning language in other laws (such as those concerning education), had the effect of fostering a national language, often at the expense of minority languages. In Spain, first under the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera (1923 to 1930), and then under the Franco regime (1936 to 1975), the use of Catalan as an official language was outlawed, leading to declining numbers of Catalan speakers as generations grew up learning Castilian, the language favoured by the state.
