Minority languages are part of the continent's shared cultural
heritage and there is a broad consensus that it is important to
protect and encourage linguistic and cultural diversity during the
process of continuing European integration. But what legislative
and policy instruments can be effective? Are there conflicts
between language rights and the social policy demands of nation
building? How are general European concerns reflected or challenged
within individual countries? This volume illustrates the
intellectually productive debate among sociolinguists, linguistic
anthropologists, language activists and policy makers. The
contributions focus on the current status of minority languages
within a 'Europe of the regions', the future prospects for minority
languages in the continuing process of European integration, and
the effectiveness or otherwise of current national and European
frameworks in ensuring future linguistic and cultural diversity.
