Resum de la ponència

On November 9th, I introduced my research project to the Linguistic Rights residents and its relation to the residence theme. We also invited Linguapax International, an NGO that promotes and creates ways to manifest the link between linguistic diversity and peace. 

Our objective was that the organization explained how they had approached the topic of linguistic rights regarding linguistic minorities all over the world. The Linguapax presentation speakers were two members of the Board: Mònica Pereña (president) and Miquel Strubell (vocal). They showed us the different initiatives performed by the organization to promote linguistic diversity across the globe. Among others, we learned about the support of artistic projects and awards given to prominent people who have worked with the research and the defense of minoritized languages. 

In the context of the activity, we could comment on the linguistic rights in the different countries of the residents and how they have approached this issue, considering the diverse disciplines to which they pertain. Therefore, the presentation has allowed us and Linguapax to establish a link that, in the future, can be materialized in new initiatives promoting linguistic diversity.
