Abstract:

Minority Language Promotion, Protection and Regulation blends a discussion of
the role of official language strategies with an analysis as to how both
strategies and legislation are implemented in a variety of contexts ranging
from Catalonia, The Basque Country, Finland, Ireland and Wales to Canada at
both federal and provincial level. It is an authoritative guide and reference
volume which tracks recent influences on official language strategy from a
legislative, political, social and economic perspective. As both activist and
critic, Colin Williams provides a fresh and challenging interpretation of the
manner in which formally discriminated language minorities are now grappling
with the exercise of power and responsibility for language –related
developments within education, the media, local government and the community.
The author poses difficult questions for the wielders of power and
decision-makers whose official pronouncements invariably support linguistic
diversity but whose policy priorities and fiscal approach tends to undercut
the capacity of vibrant communities and civil servants to deliver ambitious
programmes of reform in support of minority languages.
