“Revisiting, reanalyzing and redefining legal aspects on linguistic diversity: policy, media and education” is the title of the 3rd Mercator netwokr conference that will take place in Barcelona on 8th and 9th April 2015. Those workshops are a series of scientific events organized by the LearnMe-Mercator Network with the aim of bringing together researchers, practicioners and policy makers in the field of minority and minoritised languages. So far, two workshops have taken place in Aberystwyth (Wales) and Stockholm (Sweden) with a strong emphasis on media and education respectively.

Now the CUSC-UB invites you to attend the third workshop of this series under the title “Recent developments regarding the legal protection of minoritized languages: different european perspectives“.

The aim of this workshop will be to bring together a group of specialists that will inform the attendants of a number of innovations in the legal and political arenas in connection with a variety of European languages, and to explore the sociolinguistic consequences of these policies in a variety of settings.
