Meeting Description:

The 13th International Conference on Law and Language of the International Academy of Linguistic Law is a collaborative effort involving researchers from the Faculties of Law and Mass Communications at Chiang Mai University (Thailand), the International Observatory of Language Rights in Moncton (Canada), and UNESCOCAT in Barcelona (Spain). This conference is part of a series of biannual events organised through the International Academy of Linguistic Law since 1984 when it was founded as an international multidisciplinary organisation bringing together jurists, linguists, social scientists and all those worldwide interested in world linguistic diversity, as well as the relationship between law and language.

The General Scientific Committee of the Conference is formed by Professors Fernand de Varennes, Kanya Hirunwattanapong, and Witoon Sinsirichaveng, as well as by Professors Claudine Brohy, Denise Daoust, Angéline Martel, André Braën, Joseph-G. Turi and José Woehrling (IALL-Scientific Committee).

The total price for participants in the conference will be $500 (Canadian dollars - CAD) for registration before 29 June 2012 and $600 CAD after this date. The price includes luxury accommodation for 4 nights, meals except a few evening meals, and the conference registration fee. Transportation from and to Chiang Mai airport is also included. Participants wishing accommodation for their partners or family members who are not registered for the conference will have to pay an extra charge. The price for students and participants from Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America will be $350 CAD until 29 June or $400 after this date. For Thai students and participants not requiring accommodation, the registration fee will be $70.

The working languages of the conference will be French, English and Thai. 

Call for Papers:

The conference will be divided in blocs addressing language rights, social inclusion and ethnic conflicts. Though not limited to language conflict situations in Asia, presentations which deal specifically with this theme will be especially welcome.

Theme 4: Language Diversity, Liberalism and Democracy
